Fedora Core 5 2006-592: libtiff

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the libtiff package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2006-592 (libtiff).

The libtiff package contains a library of functions for manipulating
TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) image format files. TIFF is a widely
used file format for bitmapped images. TIFF files usually end in the
.tif extension and they are often quite large.

The libtiff package should be installed if you need to manipulate TIFF
format image files.

Update Information:

The tiffsplit command contained code that handled fixed-size
b uffers insecurely, possibly leading to stack overflows.

This problem is fixed in the updated package.
