Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : kdegraphics (MDKSA-2005:143)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

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.

Kdegraphics < 3.3 uses an embedded libtiff source tree for kfax, and
as such has the same vulnerability.

The updated packages are patched to protect against this

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0

Family: Mandriva Local Security Checks

Nessus Plugin ID: 19900 (mandrake_MDKSA-2005-143.nasl)

Bugtraq ID:

CVE ID: CVE-2005-2452
