Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:002 (wxGTK2).



Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the libtiff package
wxGTK2
uses a libtiff code tree, so it may have the same vulnerabilities:

iDefense reported the possibility of remote exploitation of an integer overflow
in libtiff that may permit for the execution of arbitrary code.

The overflow occurs in the parsing of TIFF files set with the STRIPOFFSETS
flag.

iDefense also reported a heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability within the
LibTIFF package could permit attackers to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2004-1308)
