Debian DLA-405-1 : tiff security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 88491
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 security flaws have been found and solved in libtiff, a library that provides support for handling Tag Image File Format (TIFF). These flaws concern out of bounds reads and writes in the LogL16Decode, LogLuvDecode24, LogLuvDecode32, LogLuvDecodeTile, LogL16Encode, LogLuvEncode24, LogLuvEncode32 and NeXTDecode functions.

These IDs were assigned for the problems: CVE-2015-8781, CVE-2015-8782, CVE-2015-8783 and CVE-2015-8784.

For Debian 6 'Squeeze', these issues have been fixed in tiff version 3.9.4-5+squeeze14. We recommend you to upgrade your tiff packages.

Solution
