19 July 2017
LibTIFF could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it opened a specially crafted file.
- tiff - Tag Image File Format (TIFF) library
USN-3212-1 and USN-3212-2 fixed a vulnerabilitiy in LibTIFF. This update provides a subset of
corresponding update for Ubuntu 12.04 ESM.
Original advisory details:
It was discovered that LibTIFF incorrectly handled certain malformed
images. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially
crafted image, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a
denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
