Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several problems have been discovered in the TIFF library. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues:
SuSE discovered a buffer overflow in the conversion of TIFF files
into PDF documents which could be exploited when tiff2pdf is used
e.g. in a printer filter.
The tiffsplit command from the TIFF library contains a buffer
overflow in the commandline handling which could be exploited when
the program is executed automatically on unknown filenames.
