    Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in the libtiff library
    and the included tools tiff2rgba, rgb2ycbcr, tiffcp, tiffcrop, tiff2pdf
    and tiffsplit, which may result in denial of service, memory disclosure
    or the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    There were additional vulnerabilities in the tools bmp2tiff, gif2tiff,
    thumbnail and ras2tiff, but since these were addressed by the libtiff
    developers by removing the tools altogether, no patches are available
    and those tools were also removed from the tiff package in Debian
    stable. The change had already been made in Debian stretch before and
    no applications included in Debian are known to rely on these scripts.
    If you use those tools in custom setups, consider using a different
    conversion/thumbnailing tool.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.0.3-12.3+deb8u2.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed
    in version 4.0.7-4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.0.7-4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tiff packages.
