Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:095: 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 MDKSA-2006:095 (libtiff).



A stack-based buffer overflow in the tiffsplit command in libtiff 3.8.2

and earlier might might permit attackers to execute arbitrary code via a

long filename.



NOTE: tiffsplit is not setuid, and there may not be a common scenario under

which tiffsplit is called with attacker-controlled command line arguments.



The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
