More information:

Early versions of opencv have problems while reading data, which might result in either buffer overflows, out-of bounds errors or integer overflows. Further assertion errors might happen due to incorrect integer cast.

For Debian 8 Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your opencv packages.
