Debian DLA-2009-1 : tiff security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 131328
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 Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several issues have been found in tiff, a Tag Image File Format library.

CVE-2019-17546

The RGBA interface contains an integer overflow that might lead to heap buffer overflow write.

CVE-2019-6128

A memory leak exists due to missing cleanup code.

CVE-2018-18661

In case of exhausted memory there is a NULL pointer dereference in tiff2bw.

CVE-2018-12900

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).

CVE-2017-17095

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.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
