Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200412-02
(PDFlib: Multiple overflows in the included TIFF library)


The TIFF library is subject to several known vulnerabilities (see

PDFlib-powered program. This can potentially lead to the execution of
arbitrary code with the rights of the program processing the file.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
