CVE-2017-7594 (
  The OJPEGReadHeaderInfoSecTablesDcTable function in tif_ojpeg.c in LibTIFF
  4.0.7 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory leak) via
  a crafted image.

CVE-2017-7593 (
  tif_read.c in LibTIFF 4.0.7 does not ensure that tif_rawdata is properly
  initialized, which might allow remote attackers to obtain sensitive
  information from process memory via a crafted image.

CVE-2017-7592 (
  The putagreytile function in tif_getimage.c in LibTIFF 4.0.7 has a

  other impact via a crafted image.

CVE-2017-5563 (
  LibTIFF version 4.0.7 is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer over-read in
  tif_lzw.c resulting in DoS or code execution via a crafted bmp image to

    media-libs/tiff: Bump to version 4.0.8
    Package-Manager: Portage-2.3.6, Repoman-2.3.2

Dunno if this version addresses all known vulnerabilites. 
Also, feel free to handle stabilization as required. All tests succeeded so I don't see any possible big issues arising with this version.

Removing CVE-2017-5563 from this bug: It isn't clear if this was fixed. However, bmp2tiff utility is already removed, see
