Debian DSA-4670-1 : tiff - security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 136127
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-related update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities have been found in the TIFF library, which may result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code if malformed image files are processed.

Solution

Upgrade the tiff packages.

For the oldstable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 4.0.8-2+deb9u5.
