Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Wouter Hanegraaff discovered that the TIFF library did not
sufficiently validate the 'YCbCr subsampling' value in TIFF image
headers. Decoding a malicious image with a zero value resulted in an
arithmetic exception, which can cause a program that uses the TIFF
library to crash.

The updated packages are patched to protect against this
vulnerability.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
