[SECURITY] [DLA 693-2] tiff regression update

Package        : tiff
Version        : 4.0.2-6+deb7u10
Debian Bug     : 852610

Version 4.0.2-6+deb7u7 introduced changes that resulted in libtiff
being unable to write out tiff files when the compression scheme
in use relies on codec-specific TIFF tags embedded in the image.

This problem manifested itself with errors like those:
$ tiffcp -r 16 -c jpeg sample.tif out.tif
_TIFFVGetField: out.tif: Invalid tag "Predictor" (not supported by codec).
_TIFFVGetField: out.tif: Invalid tag "BadFaxLines" (not supported by codec).
tiffcp: tif_dirwrite.c:687: TIFFWriteDirectorySec: Assertion `0' failed.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your tiff packages.
