Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : libtiff (MDVSA-2009:150)

High Nessus Plugin ID 39849


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


Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in libtiff :

Buffer underflow in the LZWDecodeCompat function in libtiff 3.8.2 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted TIFF image, a different vulnerability than CVE-2008-2327 (CVE-2009-2285).

Fix several places in tiff2rgba and rgb2ycbcr that were being careless about possible integer overflow in calculation of buffer sizes (CVE-2009-2347).

This update provides fixes for these vulnerabilities.


Update the affected packages.
