USN-3212-1: LibTIFF vulnerabilities
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3212-1
27th February, 2017
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
- Ubuntu 16.10
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
LibTIFF could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it opened a specially crafted file.
- tiff - Tag Image File Format (TIFF) library
It was discovered that LibTIFF incorrectly handled certain malformed
images. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially
crafted image, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a
denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package version:
- Ubuntu 16.10:
- libtiff5 4.0.6-2ubuntu0.1
- libtiff-tools 4.0.6-2ubuntu0.1
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
- libtiff5 4.0.6-1ubuntu0.1
- libtiff-tools 4.0.6-1ubuntu0.1
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
- libtiff5 4.0.3-7ubuntu0.6
- libtiff-tools 4.0.3-7ubuntu0.6
To update your system, please follow these instructions: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Security/Upgrades.
In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
