Multiple vulnerabilities in libTIFF could result in execution of
arbitrary code or Denial of Service.
libTIFF provides support for reading and manipulating TIFF (Tagged Image
File Format) images.
Vulnerable: < 4.0.2-r1
Unaffected: >= 4.0.2-r1
Unaffected: >= 3.9.5-r2 < 3.9.6
Unaffected: >= 3.9.7-r1 < 3.9.8
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in libTIFF. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted TIFF
file with an application making use of libTIFF, possibly resulting in
execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
application or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libTIFF 4.0 users should upgrade to the latest version:
All libTIFF 3.9 users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/tiff-4.0.2-r1"
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/tiff-3.9.5-r2"
