    tiff vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 12.04 ESM
    
    Summary:
    
    LibTIFF could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it
    opened a specially crafted file.
    
    Software Description:
    - tiff: Tag Image File Format (TIFF) library
    
    Details:
    
    USN-3906-1 and USN-3864-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in LibTIFF.
    This update provides the corresponding update for Ubuntu 12.04 ESM.
    
    Original advisory details:
    
     It was discovered that LibTIFF incorrectly handled certain malformed
     images. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a
     specially crafted image, a remote attacker could crash the
     application, leading to a denial of service, or possibly execute
     arbitrary code with user privileges.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 ESM:
      libtiff-tools                   3.9.5-2ubuntu1.12
      libtiff4                        3.9.5-2ubuntu1.12
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary
    changes.
