Debian DLA-1094-1 : tiff3 security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 103094
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA heap based buffer overflow has been discovered in the tiff2pdf utility, part of the Tag Image File Format (TIFF) library.
A PlanarConfig=Contig image can cause an out-of-bounds write (related to the ZIPDecode function). A crafted input may lead to a remote denial of service attack or an arbitrary code execution attack.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 3.9.6-11+deb7u8.
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.
SolutionUpgrade the affected packages.
