    The tiff library for handling TIFF image files contained a stack-based
    buffer overflow, potentially allowing attackers who can submit such
    files to a vulnerable system to execute arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.9.4-5+squeeze8.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 4.0.2-1 of the tiff
    package, and version 3.9.6-10 of the tiff3 package.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tiff packages.
