Description

Pedro Ribeiro discovered that LibTIFF incorrectly handled certain malformed images when using the gif2tiff tool. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted GIF image, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges. This issue only affected Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Ubunu 12.04 LTS, Ubuntu 12.10 and Ubuntu 13.10. (CVE-2013-4231)
