Package        : tiff
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
Problem type   : none or remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-2656 CVE-2006-2193
Debian Bug     : 369819

Several problems have been discovered in the TIFF library.  The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues:


    SuSE discovered a buffer overflow in the conversion of TIFF files
    into PDF documents which could be exploited when tiff2pdf is used
    e.g. in a printer filter.


    The tiffsplit command from the TIFF library contains a buffer
    overflow in the commandline handling which could be exploited when
    the program is executed automatically on unknown filenames.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.5.5-7woody2.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.7.2-5.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.8.2-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your tiff packages.
