Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in LibTIFF, the worst of
which could result in a Denial of Service condition.
The TIFF library contains encoding and decoding routines for the Tag
Image File Format. It is called by numerous programs, including GNOME and
KDE applications, to interpret TIFF images.
Vulnerable: < 4.1.0
Unaffected: >= 4.1.0
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in libTIFF. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A remote attacker, by enticing the user to process a specially crafted
TIFF file, could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libTIFF users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/tiff-4.1.0"
