    tiff vulnerabilities
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    - Ubuntu 19.04
    - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    Several security issues were fixed in LibTIFF.
    Software Description:
    - tiff: Tag Image File Format (TIFF) library
    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 19.04:
      libtiff-tools                   4.0.10-4ubuntu0.1
      libtiff5                        4.0.10-4ubuntu0.1
    Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
      libtiff-tools                   4.0.9-5ubuntu0.3
      libtiff5                        4.0.9-5ubuntu0.3
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
      libtiff-tools                   4.0.6-1ubuntu0.7
      libtiff5                        4.0.6-1ubuntu0.7
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
