Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:0318
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:0318.

The libtiff packages contain a library of functions for manipulating Tagged
Image File Format (TIFF) files.

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way libtiff processed
certain TIFF Internet Fax image files, compressed with the CCITT Group 4
compression algorithm. An attacker could use this flaw to create a
specially-crafted TIFF file that, when opened, would cause an application
linked against libtiff to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.

Red Hat would like to thank Apple Product Security for reporting this

All libtiff users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to resolve this issue. All running applications linked
against libtiff must be restarted for this update to take effect.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
