    1. Summary:
    
    Updated libtiff packages that fix multiple security issues are now
    available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
    
    The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Moderate
    security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
    which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
    from the CVE links in the References section.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
    
    3. Description:
    
    The libtiff packages contain a library of functions for manipulating Tagged
    Image File Format (TIFF) files.
    
    A heap-based buffer overflow and a use-after-free flaw were found in the
    tiff2pdf tool. An attacker could use these flaws to create a specially
    crafted TIFF file that would cause tiff2pdf to crash or, possibly, execute
    arbitrary code. (CVE-2013-1960, CVE-2013-4232)
    
    Multiple buffer overflow flaws were found in the gif2tiff tool. An attacker
    could use these flaws to create a specially crafted GIF file that could
    cause gif2tiff to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.
    (CVE-2013-4231, CVE-2013-4243, CVE-2013-4244)
    
    Multiple buffer overflow flaws were found in the tiff2pdf tool. An attacker
    could use these flaws to create a specially crafted TIFF file that would
    cause tiff2pdf to crash. (CVE-2013-1961)
    
    Red Hat would like to thank Emmanuel Bouillon of NCI Agency for reporting
    CVE-2013-1960 and CVE-2013-1961. The CVE-2013-4243 issue was discovered by
    Murray McAllister of the Red Hat Security Response Team, and the
    CVE-2013-4244 issue was discovered by Huzaifa Sidhpurwala of the Red Hat
    Security Response Team.
    
    All libtiff users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
    contain backported patches to correct these issues. All running
    applications linked against libtiff must be restarted for this update to
    take effect.
