SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
Descriptionlibtiff is vulnerable to multiple buffer overflows and integer overflows that can lead to application crashes (denial of service) or worse.
Integer overflow that can lead to divide-by-zero in TIFFReadEncodedStrip (tif_read.c).
Divide-by-zero error in OJPEGDecodeRaw (tif_ojpeg.c). CVE-2016-10268
Heap-based buffer overflow in TIFFReverseBits (tif_swab.c).
Heap-based buffer overflow in _TIFFmemcpy (tif_unix.c).
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 4.0.2-6+deb7u11.
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.
SolutionUpgrade the affected packages.
