Synopsis

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

Description

Updated libtiff packages fix security vulnerabilities :

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way tiff2pdf of libtiff performed write of TIFF image content into particular PDF document file, in the tp_process_jpeg_strip() function. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted TIFF image format file, that when processed by tiff2pdf would lead to tiff2pdf executable crash or, potentially, arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running the tiff2pdf binary (CVE-2013-1960).

A stack-based buffer overflow was found in the way tiff2pdf of libtiff performed write of TIFF image content into particular PDF document file, when malformed image-length and resolution values are used in the TIFF file. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted TIFF image format file, that when processed by tiff2pdf would lead to tiff2pdf executable crash (CVE-2013-1961).

Solution

Update the affected packages.
