   SA Document Body
   Multiple security vulnerabilities exist in the Tag Image File format

   Impact

   Multiple security vulnerabilities exist in the Tag Image File format
   library (libtiff(3)) which may affect applications making use of this
   library. Depending on the individual application, these
   vulnerabilities may allow a local or remote unprivileged user to cause
   a Denial of Service (DoS) to the application, or to execute arbitrary
   code with the privileges of the application.

   These issues are described in the following documents:
