medium Nessus Plugin ID 69467
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

Updated libtiff packages fix security vulnerabilities :

Pedro Ribeiro discovered a buffer overflow flaw in rgb2ycbcr, a tool to convert RGB color, greyscale, or bi-level TIFF images to YCbCr images, and multiple buffer overflow flaws in gif2tiff, a tool to convert GIF images to TIFF. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted TIFF or GIF file that, when processed by rgb2ycbcr and gif2tiff respectively, would cause the tool to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the tool (CVE-2013-4231).

Pedro Ribeiro discovered a use-after-free flaw in the t2p_readwrite_pdf_image\(\) function in tiff2pdf, a tool for converting a TIFF image to a PDF document. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted TIFF file that, when processed by tiff2pdf, would cause tiff2pdf to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running tiff2pdf (CVE-2013-4232).

Solution
