Debian Security Advisory

DLA-610-2 tiff3 -- LTS security update

Date Reported:
30 Jan 2017
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 852610.
More information:

Version 3.9.6-11+deb7u1 and 3.9.6-11+deb7u2 introduced changes that resulted in libtiff writing out invalid tiff files when the compression scheme in use relies on codec-specific TIFF tags embedded in the image.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 3.9.6-11+deb7u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your tiff3 packages.
