Description

Vendor

Canonical Ubuntu

Versions Affected

  • Canonical Ubuntu 14.04

Description

USN-3212-1 fixed vulnerabilities in LibTIFF. Unfortunately, some of the security patches were misapplied, which caused a regression when processing certain images. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

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.

Affected Cloud Foundry Products and Versions

  • All versions of Cloud Foundry cflinuxfs2 prior to 1.125.0

Mitigation
