jasper: two NULL pointer dereference in bmp_getdata (bmp_dec.c)

Description:
jasper is an open-source initiative to provide a free software-based reference implementation of the codec specified in the JPEG-2000 Part-1 standard.

A fuzzing revelaled two NULL pointer access in bmp_getdata.

Since jasper seems to be dead for years, I first posted this bug on oss-security. Since few days I noticed that the development is alive on github, I posted the bug to the maintainer which comes with a fast response/fix.

The complete ASan output:
