openSUSE 10 Security Update : tiff (tiff-1594)

High Nessus Plugin ID 27468


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update fixes a stack-based buffer overflow in tiffsplit that can be triggered with long filemanes (CVE-2006-2656) and a buffer overflow in tiff2pdf. Both tools are not setuid but may be exploited in conjunction with other applications. Exploitation very unlikely.


Update the affected tiff package.
