Description

Several problems have been discovered in the TIFF library. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues :

  • CVE-2006-2193 SuSE discovered a buffer overflow in the conversion of TIFF files into PDF documents which could be exploited when tiff2pdf is used e.g. in a printer filter.

  • CVE-2006-2656 The tiffsplit command from the TIFF library contains a buffer overflow in the commandline handling which could be exploited when the program is executed automatically on unknown filenames.
