Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-07-12 15:12:25 UTC
From ${URL} :

In LibTIFF 4.0.8, there is a memory leak in tif_jbig.c. A crafted TIFF
document can lead to a memory leak resulting in a remote denial of
service attack.

Upstream bug:

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
