Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1078] DSA-1078-1 tiff

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1078-1 tiff

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Andrey Kiselev discovered a problem in the TIFF library that may permit
a possible hacker with a specially crafted TIFF image with Yr/Yg/Yb values
that exceed the YCR/YCG/YCB values to crash the library and hence the
surrounding application.
The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.7.2-4.
The unstable distribution (sid) is not affected by this problem.
We recommend that you upgrade your tiff packages and restart the
programs using it.
