Ubuntu 14.04 LTS / 16.04 LTS : LibTIFF vulnerabilities (USN-3212-1)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 97434

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

It was discovered that LibTIFF incorrectly handled certain malformed images. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted image, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges.

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

Solution

Update the affected packages.
