    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Tiff, a library set and tools

    These vulnerabilities can be exploited via a specially crafted TIFF image.

      t2p_read_tiff_init() function.

    CVE-2010-4665
      The tiffdump utility has an integer overflow in the ReadDirectory function.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.9.4-5+squeeze5.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.0.2-2.
