Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

USN-1085-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the system TIFF library. The upstream fixes were incomplete and created problems for certain CCITTFAX4 files. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Sauli Pahlman discovered that the TIFF library incorrectly handled invalid td_stripbytecount fields. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted TIFF image, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and 10.10. (CVE-2010-2482)

Sauli Pahlman discovered that the TIFF library incorrectly handled TIFF files with an invalid combination of SamplesPerPixel and Photometric values. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted TIFF image, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 10.10. (CVE-2010-2482)

Nicolae Ghimbovschi discovered that the TIFF library incorrectly handled invalid ReferenceBlackWhite values. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted TIFF image, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a denial of service.
(CVE-2010-2595)

Sauli Pahlman discovered that the TIFF library incorrectly handled certain default fields. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted TIFF image, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-2597, CVE-2010-2598)

It was discovered that the TIFF library incorrectly validated certain data types. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted TIFF image, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-2630)

It was discovered that the TIFF library incorrectly handled downsampled JPEG data. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted TIFF image, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with user privileges, or crash the application, leading to a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and 10.10. (CVE-2010-3087)

It was discovered that the TIFF library incorrectly handled certain JPEG data. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted TIFF image, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with user privileges, or crash the application, leading to a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 6.06 LTS, 8.04 LTS and 9.10. (CVE-2011-0191)

It was discovered that the TIFF library incorrectly handled certain TIFF FAX images. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted TIFF FAX image, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with user privileges, or crash the application, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-0191).
