Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3906-2
Ubuntu Security Notice 3906-2 – USN-3906-1 and USN-3864-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in LibTIFF. This update provides the corresponding update for Ubuntu 12.04 ESM. 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. Various other issues were also addressed.
