Vulnerability Assessment Details

USN54-1 : tiff vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
tiff vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- libtiff-tools
- libtiff4
- libtiff4-dev


Description :

Dmitry V. Levin discovered a buffer overflow in the "tiffdump"
utility. If a possible hacker tricked a user into processing a malicious
TIFF image with tiffdump, they could cause a buffer overflow which at
least causes the program to crash. However, it is not entirely clear
whether this can be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the
rights of the user opening the image.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- libtiff-tools-3.6.1-1.1ubuntu1.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- libtiff4-3.6.1-1.1ubuntu1.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- libtiff4-dev-3.6.1-1.1ubuntu1.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
