Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
A buffer overflow has been found in the tiff2pdf utility. By tricking
an user into processing a specially crafted TIF file with tiff2pdf,
this could potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user. (CVE-2006-2193)
A. Alejandro Hernï¿½ez discovered a buffer overflow in the tiffsplit
utility. By calling tiffsplit with specially crafted long arguments,
an user can execute arbitrary code. If tiffsplit is used in e. g. a
web-based frontend or similar automated system, this could lead to
remote arbitary code execution with the privileges of that system. (In
normal interactive command line usage this is not a vulnerability.)
Update the affected packages.
