Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.50490
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu 4.10 USN-54-1 (tiff)
Summary:Ubuntu 4.10 USN-54-1 (tiff)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to tiff
announced via advisory USN-54-1.

Dmitry V. Levin discovered a buffer overflow in the 'tiffdump'
utility. If an attacker 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
privileges of the user opening the image.

The following packages are affected: libtiff-tools

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 3.6.1-1.1ubuntu1.2. In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
