Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities in libTIFF could result in execution of
arbitrary code or Denial of Service.

Background
==========

libTIFF provides support for reading and manipulating TIFF (Tagged
Image File Format) images.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-libs/tiff             < 4.0.2-r1              *>= 3.9.5-r2
                                                          >= 4.0.2-r1

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in libTIFF. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted TIFF
file with an application making use of libTIFF, possibly resulting in
execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
application or a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All libTIFF 4.0 users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/tiff-4.0.2-r1"

All libTIFF 3.9 users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/tiff-3.9.5-r2"
