        Emmanuel Bouillon discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in the
        tp_process_jpeg_strip function in the tiff2pdf tool.  This could
        potentially lead to a crash or arbitrary code execution.

        Emmanuel Bouillon discovered many stack-based buffer overflows in
        the tiff tools.  These issues could potentially lead to a crash or
        arbitrary code execution.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.9.4-5+squeeze9.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.0.2-6+deb7u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.0.2-6+nmu1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tiff packages.
