Ubuntu Security Notice USN-5743-1
November 24, 2022

tiff vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

– Ubuntu 16.04 ESM


LibTIFF could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it
opened a specially crafted file.

Software Description:
– tiff: Tag Image File Format (TIFF) library


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.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 16.04 ESM:
libtiff-tools 4.0.6-1ubuntu0.8+esm8
libtiff5 4.0.6-1ubuntu0.8+esm8

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
