LibTIFF 'tif_lzw.c' Remote Buffer Underflow Vulnerability

LibTIFF is prone to a remote buffer-underflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied data.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary malicious code in the context of the user running an application that uses the affected library. Failed exploit attempts will likely crash applications using the affected library.

LibTIFF 3.7.2 and 3.8.2 are vulnerable.
