High Nessus Plugin ID 20941
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionStack-based buffer overflow in libTIFF before 3.7.2 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a TIFF file with a malformed BitsPerSample tag. Although some of the previous updates appear to already catch this issue, this update adds some additional checks.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
