CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'libtiff' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
libtiff on CentOS 5

Technical Details:
The libtiff Linux Distribution Packages contain a library of functions for manipulating Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) files. A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way libtiff processed certain TIFF Internet Fax image files, compressed with the CCITT Group 4 compression algorithm. An attacker could use this flaw 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-2011-0192) Red Hat would like to thank Apple Product Security for reporting this issue. All libtiff users should upgrade to these updated Linux Distribution Packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. All running applications linked against libtiff must be restarted for this update to take effect.

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch
