-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Debian Security Advisory DSA-2589-1 December 16, 2012 - ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Package : tiff Vulnerability : buffer overflow Problem type : local Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2012-5581 Debian Bug : 694693 The tiff library for handling TIFF image files contained a stack-based buffer overflow, potentially allowing attackers who can submit such files to a vulnerable system to execute arbitrary code. For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 3.9.4-5+squeeze8. For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 4.0.2-1 of the tiff package, and version 3.9.6-10 of the tiff3 package. We recommend that you upgrade your tiff packages.
