Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.57038
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-289-1 (tiff)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-289-1 (tiff)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to tiff
announced via advisory USN-289-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.04
Ubuntu 5.10
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

A buffer overflow has been found in the tiff2pdf utility. By tricking
an user into processing a specially crafted TIF file with tiff2pdf,
this could potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user. (CVE-2006-2193)

A. Alejandro Hernndez discovered a buffer overflow in the tiffsplit
utility. By calling tiffsplit with specially crafted long arguments,
an user can execute arbitrary code. If tiffsplit is used in e. g. a
web-based frontend or similar automated system, this could lead to
remote arbitary code execution with the privileges of that system. (In
normal interactive command line usage this is not a vulnerability.)
(CVE-2006-2656)

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 5.04:
libtiff-tools 3.6.1-5ubuntu0.5

Ubuntu 5.10:
libtiff-tools 3.7.3-1ubuntu1.4

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
libtiff-tools 3.7.4-1ubuntu3.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
