The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
A buffer overflow in the t2p_write_pdf_string function in tiff2pdf in
libtiff 3.8.2 and earlier allows attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a TIFF file
with a DocumentName tag that contains UTF-8 characters, which triggers
the overflow when a character is sign extended to an integer that
produces more digits than expected in a sprintf call.
Corporate Server 3 and Corporate Desktop 3 are not affected by this
vulnerability as tiff2pdf was not part of the libtiff version shipped
in those products.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
Update the affected packages.
Risk factor :
High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
