Fedora Core 4 : libtiff-3.7.1-6.fc4.2 (2006-591)
High Nessus Plugin ID 24116
SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe tiffsplit command contained code that handled fixed-size buffers insecurely, possibly leading to stack overflows.
This problem is fixed in the updated package.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected libtiff, libtiff-debuginfo and / or libtiff-devel packages.
