The JasPer project is an open source implementation for the JPEG-2000 codec.

The library is affected by an off-by-one error in a buffer boundary check in jpc_dec_process_sot(), leading to a heap based buffer overflow, as well as multiple unrestricted stack memory use issues in jpc_qmfb.c, leading to stack overflow.

A specially crafted jp2 file can be used to trigger the vulnerabilities.
