Debian DLA-2147-1 : gdal security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 134683


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


tif_getimage.c in LibTIFF, as used in GDAL has an integer overflow that potentially causes a heap-based buffer overflow via a crafted RGBA image, related to a 'Negative-size-param' condition.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 1.10.1+dfsg-8+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your gdal 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.


Upgrade the affected packages.
