Description Aleksandr Wagner (Kivak) 2017-08-21 06:16:03 UTC
CVE-2017-12944 (http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2017-12944):

The TIFFReadDirEntryArray function in tif_read.c in LibTIFF 4.0.8 mishandles memory allocation for short files, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (allocation failure and application crash) in the TIFFFetchStripThing function in tif_dirread.c during a tiff2pdf invocation.

Note:

https://github.com/vadz/libtiff/commit/dc02f9050311a90b3c0655147cee09bfa7081cfc commit fixes the issue in TIFFFetchStripThing however the issue is still present in t2p_readwrite_pdf_image_tile.

This is already dealt with, at least SLOT 0 is clean. No idea about SLOT 3.
Comment 2 D'juan McDonald (domhnall) 2018-11-16 00:33:47 UTC
Package already cleaned from tree:

TIFFReadDirEntryArray() is not present in the 3.x code.  Tree is secure.
