Notes

https://github.com/mdadams/jasper/issues/103
Fixed by https://github.com/mdadams/jasper/commit/99a50593254d1b53002719bbecfc946c84b23d27
The issue exists due to an overflow check which is not present
in Wheezy and Jessie. However it makes sense to implement this check.
This can be done when more important issues are found [wheezy].
Not suitable for code injection, hardly denial of service
