High Nessus Plugin ID 24551


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the libtiff package;
wxGTK2 uses a libtiff code tree, so it may have the same vulnerabilities :

Chris Evans discovered several problems in the RLE (run length encoding) decoders that could lead to arbitrary code execution.

Matthias Clasen discovered a division by zero through an integer overflow. (CVE-2004-0804)

Dmitry V. Levin discovered several integer overflows that caused malloc issues which can result to either plain crash or memory corruption. (CVE-2004-0886)
