Debian DSA-3273-1 : tiff - security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 83820

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

William Robinet and Michal Zalewski discovered multiple vulnerabilities in the TIFF library and its tools, which may result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed TIFF file is processed.

Upgrade the tiff packages.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 4.0.2-6+deb7u4.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed before the initial release.
