Debian DLA-221-1 : tiff security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 83499
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 Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the LibTIFF library and utilities for the Tag Image File Format. These could lead to a denial of service, information disclosure or privilege escalation.

CVE-2014-8128

William Robinet discovered that out-of-bounds writes are triggered in several of the LibTIFF utilities when processing crafted TIFF files.
Other applications using LibTIFF are also likely to be affected in the same way.

CVE-2014-8129

William Robinet discovered that out-of-bounds reads and writes are triggered in tiff2pdf when processing crafted TIFF files. Other applications using LibTIFF are also likely to be affected in the same way.

CVE-2014-9330

Paris Zoumpouloglou discovered that out-of-bounds reads and writes are triggered in bmp2tiff when processing crafted BMP files.

CVE-2014-9655

Michal Zalewski discovered that out-of-bounds reads and writes are triggered in LibTIFF when processing crafted TIFF files.

For the oldoldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 3.9.4-5+squeeze12.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems will be fixed soon.

The stable distribution (jessie) was not affected by these problems as they were fixed before release.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
