Tavis Ormandy of Google discovered a number of flaws in
libtiff during a security audit. An attacker could create a
carefully crafted TIFF file in such a way that it was
possible to cause an application linked with libtiff to
crash or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2006-3459,
CVE-2006-3460, CVE-2006-3461, CVE-2006-3462, CVE-2006-3463,

All users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported fixes for these issues.
