Several security vulnerabilities were discovered in tiff3, a library providing support for the Tag Image File Format (TIFF). An attacker could take advantage of these flaws to cause a denial-of-service against an application using the libtiff4 or libtiffxx0c2 library (application crash), or potentially execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 3.9.6-11+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your tiff3 packages.
