Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: libTIFF: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201709-27)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: 2017-09-26
Bug(s): #610330, #614020, #614022, #617996, #617998, #618610, #624602
ID: 201709-27

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in LibTIFF, the worst of
which could result in the execution of arbitrary code.


Background

The TIFF library contains encoding and decoding routines for the Tag
Image File Format. It is called by numerous programs, including GNOME and
KDE applications, to interpret TIFF images.


Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/tiff
Vulnerable: < 4.0.8
Unaffected: >= 4.0.8
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in LibTIFF. Please review
the referenced CVE identifiers for details.


Impact

A remote attacker, by enticing the user to process a specially crafted
TIFF file, could possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
the process, cause a Denial of Service condition, obtain sensitive
information, or have other unspecified impacts.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All LibTIFF users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/tiff-4.0.8"
   
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
