Debian DSA-1375-1 : - buffer overflow

high Nessus Plugin ID 26078
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 Debian host is missing a security-related update.


A heap overflow vulnerability has been discovered in the TIFF parsing code of the suite. The parser uses untrusted values from the TIFF file to calculate the number of bytes of memory to allocate. A specially crafted TIFF image could trigger an integer overflow and subsequently a buffer overflow that could cause the execution of arbitrary code.


Upgrade the packages.

For the old stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 1.1.3-9sarge8.

For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.4.dfsg.2-7etch2.
