    "infamous41md" discovered a problem in libtiff, the Tag Image File
    Format library for processing TIFF graphics files.  Upon reading a
    TIFF file it is possible to allocate a zero sized buffer and write to
    it which would lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.5.5-6woody2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.6.1-4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libtiff packages immediately.
