MDKSA-2006:102: 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-2006:102 (libtiff).

A buffer overflow in the t2p_write_pdf_string function in tiff2pdf in

libtiff 3.8.2 and earlier permits attackers to cause a denial of service

(crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a TIFF file with a

DocumentName tag that contains UTF-8 characters, which triggers the

overflow when a character is sign extended to an integer that produces

more digits than expected in a sprintf call.

Corporate Server 3 and Corporate Desktop 3 are not affected by this

vulnerability as tiff2pdf was not part of the libtiff version shipped

in those products.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
