High Nessus Plugin ID 22149

Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated libtiff packages that fix several security flaws are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The libtiff package contains a library of functions for manipulating TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) files.

Tavis Ormandy of Google discovered a number of flaws in libtiff during a security audit. An attacker could create a carefully crafted TIFF file in such a way that it was possible to cause an application linked with libtiff to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2006-3459, CVE-2006-3460, CVE-2006-3461, CVE-2006-3462, CVE-2006-3463, CVE-2006-3464, CVE-2006-3465)

All users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported fixes for these issues.

Solution

Update the affected libtiff and / or libtiff-devel packages.
