Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : libtiff (MDVSA-2012:101)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in
libtiff :

libtiff did not properly convert between signed and unsigned integer
values, leading to a buffer overflow. An attacker could use this flaw
to create a specially crafted TIFF file that, when opened, would cause
an application linked against libtiff to crash or, possibly, execute
arbitrary code (CVE-2012-2088).

Multiple integer overflow flaws, leading to heap-based buffer
overflows, were found in the tiff2pdf tool. An attacker could use
these flaws to create a specially crafted TIFF file that would cause
tiff2pdf to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code
(CVE-2012-2113).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.5
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
