NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply only to the upstream tiff package and not the tiff package as distributed by Ubuntu. See How to fix? for Ubuntu:18.04 relevant fixed versions and status.

LibTIFF 4.4.0 has an out-of-bounds read in tiffcrop in libtiff/tif_unix.c:368, invoked by tools/tiffcrop.c:2903 and tools/tiffcrop.c:6921, 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 afaabc3e.
