Debian DLA-983-1 : tiff3 security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 100771

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

tiff3 was affected by multiple memory leaks (CVE-2017-9403, CVE-2017-9404) that could result in denial of service. Furthermore, while the current version in Debian was already patched for
_TIFFVGetField issues (CVE-2016-10095, CVE-2017-9147), we replaced our Debian-specific patches by the upstream provided patches to stay closer to upstream.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 3.9.6-11+deb7u6.

We recommend that you upgrade your tiff3 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.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
