 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:184

 Package : libtiff
 Date    : December 27, 2012
 Affected: 2011., Enterprise Server 5.0

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability was found and corrected in libtiff:
 A stack-based buffer overflow was found in the way libtiff
 handled DOTRANGE tags. An attacker could use this flaw to create
 a specially-crafted TIFF file  that, when opened, would cause an
 application linked against libtiff to crash  or, possibly, execute
 arbitrary code (CVE-2012-5581).
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
