The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of BlackBerry Enterprise Server on the remote host reportedly contains multiple remote code execution vulnerabilities in its image processing library :

- The 'TIFFReadDirectory()' function in 'tif_dirread.c' is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability that can be triggered via a specially crafted TIFF image, potentially leading to arbitrary code execution.

- A flaw in handling PixarLog compressed TIFF images may be triggered via a specially crafted TIFF image, potentially leading to arbitrary code execution.
