Debian Security Advisory DSA 3762-1 (tiff - security update)

Published: 2017-01-12 23:00:00
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

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

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Affected Versions:
tiff on Debian Linux

Recommendations:
For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 4.0.3-12.3+deb8u2. For the testing distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 4.0.7-4. For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 4.0.7-4. We recommend that you upgrade your tiff Linux Distribution Packages.

Summary:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in the libtiff library and the included tools tiff2rgba, rgb2ycbcr, tiffcp, tiffcrop, tiff2pdf and tiffsplit, which may result in denial of service, memory disclosure or the execution of arbitrary code. There were additional vulnerabilities in the tools bmp2tiff, gif2tiff, thumbnail and ras2tiff, but since these were addressed by the libtiff developers by removing the tools altogether, no patches are available and those tools were also removed from the tiff Linux Distribution Package in Debian stable. The change had already been made in Debian stretch before and no applications included in Debian are known to rely on these scripts. If you use those tools in custom setups, consider using a different conversion/thumbnailing tool.

Detection Method:
This check tests the installed software version using the apt Linux Distribution Package manager.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
