Red Hat: Security update for OpenJPEG

OpenJPEG is an open source library for reading and writing image files in JPEG 2000 format. It was found that OpenJPEG failed to sanity-check an image header field before using it. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted image file that could cause an application linked against OpenJPEG to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.

Updated packages are available from ftp.redhat.com.
