Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:102
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : libtiff
Date : June 14, 2006
Affected: 10.2, 2006.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A buffer overflow in the t2p_write_pdf_string function in tiff2pdf in
libtiff 3.8.2 and earlier allows attackers to cause a denial of service
(crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a TIFF file with a
DocumentName tag that contains UTF-8 characters, which triggers the
overflow when a character is sign extended to an integer that produces
more digits than expected in a sprintf call.

Corporate Server 3 and Corporate Desktop 3 are not affected by this
vulnerability as tiff2pdf was not part of the libtiff version shipped
in those products.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
