Out-of-bounds Read


Severity Medium
Score 5.5/10


The package libtiff's tiffcrop utility has a "uint32_t" underflow that can lead to out-of-bounds read and write in versions prior to v4.4.0rc1. An attacker who supplies a crafted file to tiffcrop (likely via tricking a user to run tiffcrop on it with certain parameters) could cause a crash or in some cases, further exploitation.
