SUSE-SA:2005:001: libtiff/tiff

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the libtiff/tiff package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2005:001 (libtiff/tiff).


Libtiff supports reading, writing, and manipulating of TIFF image files.
iDEFENSE reported an integer overflow in libtiff that can be exploited by
specific TIFF images to trigger a heap-based buffer overflow afterwards.

This bug can be used by external attackers to execute arbitrary code
over the network by placing special image files on web-pages and
alike.

Additionally a buffer overflow in tiffdump was fixed.
