USN-5743-1: LibTIFF vulnerability




VMware Tanzu

Versions Affected

  • Canonical Ubuntu 16.04


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: Run `sudo pro fix USN-5743-1` to fix the vulnerability. The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions: libtiff-opengl - 4.0.6-1ubuntu0.8+esm8 libtiff-tools - 4.0.6-1ubuntu0.8+esm8 libtiff5-dev - 4.0.6-1ubuntu0.8+esm8 libtiff5 - 4.0.6-1ubuntu0.8+esm8 libtiffxx5 - 4.0.6-1ubuntu0.8+esm8 libtiff-doc - 4.0.6-1ubuntu0.8+esm8 Available with Ubuntu Pro (Infra-only):
