MDKSA-2006:102: libtiff Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the libtiff package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:102 (libtiff).

A buffer overflow in the t2p_write_pdf_string function in tiff2pdf in

libtiff 3.8.2 and earlier allows attackers to cause a denial of service

(crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a TIFF file with a

DocumentName tag that contains UTF-8 characters, which triggers the

overflow when a character is sign extended to an integer that produces

more digits than expected in a sprintf call.

Corporate Server 3 and Corporate Desktop 3 are not affected by this

vulnerability as tiff2pdf was not part of the libtiff version shipped

in those products.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
