Debian DLA-693-2 : tiff regression update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 94474
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

Version 4.0.2-6+deb7u7 introduced changes that resulted in libtiff being unable to write out tiff files when the compression scheme in use relies on codec-specific TIFF tags embedded in the image.

This problem manifested itself with errors like those: $ tiffcp -r 16
-c jpeg sample.tif out.tif _TIFFVGetField: out.tif: Invalid tag 'Predictor' (not supported by codec). _TIFFVGetField: out.tif: Invalid tag 'BadFaxLines' (not supported by codec). tiffcp:
tif_dirwrite.c:687: TIFFWriteDirectorySec: Assertion `0' failed.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 4.0.2-6+deb7u10.

We recommend that you upgrade your tiff packages.

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.
