Debian Security Advisory
DLA-984-1 tiff -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 13 Jun 2017
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 863185.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2016-10095, CVE-2017-9147, CVE-2017-9403, CVE-2017-9404.
- More information:
tiff was affected by multiple memory leaks (CVE-2017-9403, CVE-2017-9404) that could result in denial of service. Furthermore, while the current version in Debian was already patched for _TIFFVGetField issues (CVE-2016-10095, CVE-2017-9147), we replaced our Debian-specific patches by the upstream provided patches to stay closer to upstream.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 4.0.2-6+deb7u14.
We recommend that you upgrade your tiff packages.
