Description

The EstimateStripByteCounts function in TIFF library (libtiff) before 3.8.2 uses a 16-bit unsigned short when iterating over an unsigned 32-bit value, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service via a large td_nstrips value, which triggers an infinite loop.

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.
