Virtuozzo 7 : libtiff / libtiff-devel / libtiff-static / etc (VZLSA-2017-0225)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 101417
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Virtuozzo host is missing a security update.

Description

An update for libtiff is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

The libtiff packages contain a library of functions for manipulating Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) files.

Security Fix(es) :

* Multiple flaws have been discovered in libtiff. A remote attacker could exploit these flaws to cause a crash or memory corruption and, possibly, execute arbitrary code by tricking an application linked against libtiff into processing specially crafted files.
(CVE-2016-9533, CVE-2016-9534, CVE-2016-9535)

* Multiple flaws have been discovered in various libtiff tools (tiff2pdf, tiffcrop, tiffcp, bmp2tiff). By tricking a user into processing a specially crafted file, a remote attacker could exploit these flaws to cause a crash or memory corruption and, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the libtiff tool. (CVE-2015-8870, CVE-2016-5652, CVE-2016-9540, CVE-2016-9537, CVE-2016-9536)

Note that Tenable Network Security has attempted to extract the preceding description block directly from the corresponding Red Hat security advisory. Virtuozzo provides no description for VZLSA advisories. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected libtiff / libtiff-devel / libtiff-static / etc package.
