Insight

Insight

Two integer overflow flaws, leading to heap-based buffer overflows, were found in the way libtiff attempted to allocate space for a tile in a TIFF image file. An attacker could use these flaws to create a specially-crafted TIFF file that, when opened, would cause an application linked against libtiff to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-1173 )

Solution

Solution

Run yum update libtiff to update your system.
