More information:

Multiple security issues have been found in the tiff image library that may allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash), to obtain sensitive information from process memory or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted image

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 4.0.2-6+deb7u12.

We recommend that you upgrade your tiff packages.
