USN-3212-2: LibTIFF regression

USN-3212-2: LibTIFF regression


Canonical Ubuntu

Versions Affected

  • Canonical Ubuntu 14.04


USN-3212-1 fixed vulnerabilities in LibTIFF. Unfortunately, some of the security patches were misapplied, which caused a regression when processing certain images. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

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.

Affected Cloud Foundry Products and Versions

  • All versions of Cloud Foundry cflinuxfs2 prior to 1.125.0


OSS users are strongly encouraged to follow one of the mitigations below:

  • The Cloud Foundry project recommends that Cloud Foundry deployments run with cflinuxfs2 version 1.125.0 or later.
