The remote Ubuntu 16.04 ESM / 18.04 ESM / 20.04 LTS / 22.04 LTS / 23.04 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the USN-6428-1 advisory.

  • A flaw was found in tiffcrop, a program distributed by the libtiff package. A specially crafted tiff file can lead to an out-of-bounds read in the extractImageSection function in tools/tiffcrop.c, resulting in a denial of service and limited information disclosure. This issue affects libtiff versions 4.x.
    (CVE-2023-1916)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application’s self-reported version number.
