    William Robinet and Michal Zalewski discovered multiple vulnerabilities
    in the TIFF library and its tools, which may result in denial of
    service or the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed TIFF file
    is processed.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 4.0.2-6+deb7u4.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed
    before the initial release.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tiff packages.
