RHSA-2004:577: libtiff security update (Important)  

The libtiff package contains a library of functions for manipulating TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) image format files. TIFF is a widely used file format for bitmapped images.
During a source code audit, Chris Evans discovered a number of integer overflow bugs that affect libtiff. An attacker who has the ability to trick a user into opening a malicious TIFF file could cause the application linked to libtiff to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CAN-2004-0886 and CAN-2004-0804 to these issues.
Additionally, a number of buffer overflow bugs that affect libtiff have been found. An attacker who has the ability to trick a user into opening a malicious TIFF file could cause the application linked to libtiff to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0803 to this issue.
All users are advised to upgrade to these errata packages, which contain fixes for these issues.

Quick Help

Unknown Tests
There is a hardcoded maximum limit for number of tests displayed for a definition. For a small number of oval definitions, about ~1% of all, hundreds of test have been defined. This causes the pages to grow in size, exceed even 1mb, and they are unsuitable for display in a web page. So they are not displayed.Please refer to the xml definition files if you really want to view them.
