Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2010:0519 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Important: libtiff security update 2010-07-08 15:34:41 UTC

Description Tomas Hoger 2010-07-06 19:32:57 UTC
The TIFFExtractData macro in LibTIFF before 3.9.4 does not properly
handle unknown tag types in TIFF directory entries, which allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and
application crash) via a crafted TIFF file.
