libTIFF TIFF Image Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

libTIFF is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because the application fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied data before copying it into an insufficiently sized buffer.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code within the context of an application using the affected library. Failed exploit attempts will result in a denial-of-service condition.
