Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 8.04 LTS / 8.10 / 9.04 : tiff vulnerability (USN-801-1)

Description

Tielei Wang and Tom Lane discovered that the TIFF library did not correctly handle certain malformed TIFF images. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a malicious image, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program.

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