(libTIFF: Buffer overflow)
Tavis Ormandy of the Gentoo Linux Security Audit Team discovered a
stack based buffer overflow in the libTIFF library when reading a TIFF
image with a malformed BitsPerSample tag.
Successful exploitation would require the victim to open a specially
crafted TIFF image, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
