Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux 2022 host is missing a security update.

Description

It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ALAS2022-2022-194 advisory.

- Divide By Zero error in tiffcrop in libtiff 4.4.0 allows attackers to cause a denial-of-service via a crafted tiff file. For users that compile libtiff from sources, the fix is available with commit f3a5e010.
(CVE-2022-2056, CVE-2022-2057, CVE-2022-2058)

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