Debian DLA-969-1 : tiff security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 100518
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionTwo vulnerabilities have been discovered in libtiff, a library providing support for the Tag Image File Format, which may result in denial of service (out-of-bounds read or assertion failure) via a crafted TIFF file.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 4.0.2-6+deb7u13.
We recommend that you upgrade your tiff packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected packages.
