    CVE-2011-0191

    CVE-2011-0192
    
      A buffer overflow allows to execute arbitrary code or cause
      a denial of service via a crafted TIFF Internet Fax image

    CVE-2011-1167
    
      Heap-based buffer overflow in the thunder (aka ThunderScan)
      decoder allows to execute arbitrary code via a TIFF file that
      has an unexpected BitsPerSample value.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), these problems have been
    fixed in version 3.8.2-11.4.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been
    fixed in version 3.9.4-5+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution, the first two problems have been fixed
    in version 3.9.4-8, the last problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed
    in version 3.9.4-9.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tiff packages.
