 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:127

 Package : libtiff
 Date    : August 8, 2012
 Affected: 2011., Enterprise Server 5.0

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability was found and corrected in libtiff:
 A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way tiff2pdf, a
 TIFF image to a PDF document conversion tool, of libtiff, a library
 of functions for manipulating TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) image
 format files, performed write of TIFF image content into particular PDF
 document file, when not properly initialized T2P context struct pointer
 has been provided by tiff2pdf (application requesting the conversion)
 as one of parameters for the routine performing the write. A remote
 attacker could provide a specially-crafted TIFF image format file,
 that when processed by tiff2pdf would lead to tiff2pdf executable
 crash or, potentially, arbitrary code execution with the privileges
 of the user running the tiff2pdf binary (CVE-2012-3401).
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
