New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 6.7
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSeveral issues have been found in tiff, a Tag Image File Format library.
The RGBA interface contains an integer overflow that might lead to heap buffer overflow write.
A memory leak exists due to missing cleanup code.
In case of exhausted memory there is a NULL pointer dereference in tiff2bw.
Fix for heap-based buffer overflow, that could be used to crash an application or even to execute arbitrary code (with the permission of the user running this application).
A crafted tiff file could lead to a heap buffer overflow in pal2rgb.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 4.0.3-12.3+deb8u10.
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.
