Sun < 2.3 TIFF Parser Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 26064
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Windows host has a program that is affected by multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities.


The remote host is running a version of Sun Microsystems that is affected by multiple integer overflows in its TIFF document parser that can be triggered when parsing tags in TIFF directory entries. If a remote attacker can trick a user into opening a specially crafted TIFF document, this issue can be leveraged to execute arbitrary code on the remote host subject to the user's privileges.


Upgrade to Sun Microsystems version 2.3 or later.
