CVE-2010-2630

New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

The TIFFReadDirectory function in LibTIFF 3.9.0 does not properly validate the data types of codec-specific tags that have an out-of-order position in a TIFF file, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted file, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-2481.
