Description

Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in the TIFF library (libtiff) before 3.8.2, as used in Adobe Reader 9.3.0 and other products, allow context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service via unspecified vectors, including a large tdir_count value in the TIFFFetchShortPair function in tif_dirread.c.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-libtiff
  • suse-upgrade-libtiff-32bit
  • suse-upgrade-libtiff-64bit
  • suse-upgrade-libtiff-x86

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
