Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : libtiff (cve_2012_3401_denial_of)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80685


The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party software.


The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address security updates :

- The t2p_read_tiff_init function in tiff2pdf (tools/tiff2pdf.c) in LibTIFF 4.0.2 and earlier does not properly initialize the T2P context struct pointer in certain error conditions, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted TIFF image that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.


Upgrade to Solaris 11/11 SRU 12.4.
