Description

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the TIFF manipulation and conversion library :

- CVE-2011-0191 A buffer overflow allows to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service via a crafted TIFF image with JPEG encoding. This issue affects the Debian 5.0 Lenny package only.

- CVE-2011-0192 A buffer overflow allows to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service via a crafted TIFF Internet Fax image file that has been compressed using CCITT Group 4 encoding.

- CVE-2011-1167 Heap-based buffer overflow in the thunder (aka ThunderScan) decoder allows to execute arbitrary code via a TIFF file that has an unexpected BitsPerSample value.

Solution

For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 3.9.4-5+squeeze1.
