Thanks for the quick reply.  I agree, there is not enough info in
mitre's CVE database to completely triage these particular CVEs.  They
are all related to the recent JBIG2 problems (that were addressed by
that patch).  However, my question is whether those specific issues
were addressed as well or if there are still parts of the code that are
affected.  It seems that most distros just assume that everything was
sufficiently addressed, but I want to check to make sure that this is
the case.  I don't want to leave holes open.  

Thanks again,
