specially crafted file.

Software Description:
- tiff: Tag Image File Format (TIFF) library

Details:

It was discovered that LibTIFF incorrectly handled certain malformed
images. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially
crafted image, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a
