Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99636
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionMultiple security issues have been found in the tiff image library that may allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash), to obtain sensitive information from process memory or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted image
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 4.0.2-6+deb7u12.
