Description Alaksiej Čarniajeŭ 2017-06-04 18:38:53 UTC
The port directs to a vulnerable verion of libtiff (4.0.7_1). Besides, is there any reason for it to exist at all, when there's graphics/tiff which installs libtiff too?

Comment 2 Muhammad Moinur Rahman freebsd_committer 2017-06-06 14:29:22 UTC
Vulnerable version has been updated. This is different from libtiff or tiff in the sense this port provides tools which are not provided by the graphics/tiff.
