Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : libtiff (cve_2012_2088_denial_of)

Synopsis :

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party
software.

Description :

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address
security updates :

- Integer signedness error in the TIFFReadDirectory
function in tif_dirread.c in libtiff 3.9.4 and earlier
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code
via a negative tile depth in a tiff image, which
triggers an improper conversion between signed and
unsigned types, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow.
(CVE-2012-2088)

- Multiple integer overflows in tiff2pdf in libtiff before
4.0.2 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (application crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code via a crafted tiff image, which triggers
a heap-based buffer overflow. (CVE-2012-2113)
