DLA-1094-1 tiff3 -- LTS security update

Date Reported:
10 Sep 2017
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 868513.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-11335.
More information:

A heap based buffer overflow has been discovered in the tiff2pdf utility, part of the Tag Image File Format (TIFF) library.

A PlanarConfig=Contig image can cause an out-of-bounds write (related to the ZIPDecode function). A crafted input may lead to a remote denial of service attack or an arbitrary code execution attack.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 3.9.6-11+deb7u8.

We recommend that you upgrade your tiff3 packages.
