Description

The libtiff package contains a library of functions for manipulating TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) files.

Tavis Ormandy of Google discovered a number of flaws in libtiff during a security audit. An attacker could create a carefully crafted TIFF file in such a way that it was possible to cause an application linked with libtiff to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2006-3459, CVE-2006-3460, CVE-2006-3461, CVE-2006-3462, CVE-2006-3463, CVE-2006-3464, CVE-2006-3465)

All users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported fixes for these issues.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
