Debian DLA-1346-1 : tiff security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 109044

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

A NULL pointer Dereference was discovered in the TIFFPrintDirectory function (tif_print.c) when using the tiffinfo tool to print crafted TIFF information. This vulnerability could be leveraged by remote attackers to cause a crash of the application.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 4.0.2-6+deb7u19.

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.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
