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.

Synopsis

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

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in libtiff :

The TIFFYCbCrtoRGB function in LibTIFF 3.9.0 and 3.9.2, as used in ImageMagick, does not properly handle invalid ReferenceBlackWhite values, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted TIFF image that triggers an array index error, related to downsampled OJPEG input. (CVE-2010-2595)

Multiple integer overflows in the Fax3SetupState function in tif_fax3.c in the FAX3 decoder in LibTIFF before 3.9.3 allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted TIFF file that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2010-1411).

Integer overflow in the TIFFroundup macro in LibTIFF before 3.9.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted TIFF file that triggers a buffer overflow (CVE-2010-2065).

The TIFFRGBAImageGet function in LibTIFF 3.9.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and application crash) via a TIFF file with an invalid combination of SamplesPerPixel and Photometric values (CVE-2010-2483).

The TIFFVStripSize function in tif_strip.c in LibTIFF 3.9.0 and 3.9.2 makes incorrect calls to the TIFFGetField function, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted TIFF image, related to downsampled OJPEG input and possibly related to a compiler optimization that triggers a divide-by-zero error (CVE-2010-2597).

The TIFFExtractData macro in LibTIFF before 3.9.4 does not properly handle unknown tag types in TIFF directory entries, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and application crash) via a crafted TIFF file (CVE-2010-248).

Packages for 2008.0 and 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more:
