Allocation of Resources Without Limits or Throttling


Severity Medium
Score 6.5/10


The TIFF decoder does not place a limit on the size of compressed "tile" data. A maliciously-crafted image can exploit this to cause a small image (both in terms of pixel width/height, and encoded size) to make the decoder decode large amounts of compressed data, consuming excessive memory and CPU. This vulnerability affects package versions prior to 0.10.0. This has the same fix as CVE-2023-29407
