Debian DLA-2932-1 : tiff - LTS security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 158649

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing one or more security-related updates.

Description

The remote Debian 9 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the dla-2932 advisory.

- Null source pointer passed as an argument to memcpy() function within TIFFFetchStripThing() in tif_dirread.c in libtiff versions from 3.9.0 to 4.3.0 could lead to Denial of Service via crafted TIFF file. For users that compile libtiff from sources, the fix is available with commit eecb0712.
(CVE-2022-0561)

- Null source pointer passed as an argument to memcpy() function within TIFFReadDirectory() in tif_dirread.c in libtiff versions from 4.0 to 4.3.0 could lead to Denial of Service via crafted TIFF file. For users that compile libtiff from sources, a fix is available with commit 561599c. (CVE-2022-0562)

- LibTIFF 4.3.0 has an out-of-bounds read in _TIFFmemcpy in tif_unix.c in certain situations involving a custom tag and 0x0200 as the second word of the DE field. (CVE-2022-22844)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade the tiff packages.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 4.0.8-2+deb9u8.
