NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply only to the upstream tiff package and not the tiff package as distributed by Debian:11. See How to fix? for Debian:11 relevant fixed versions and status.

LibTIFF 4.4.0 has an out-of-bounds read in extractImageSection in tools/tiffcrop.c:6905, allowing attackers to cause a denial-of-service via a crafted tiff file. For users that compile libtiff from sources, the fix is available with commit 48d6ece8.
