LibTiff tif_ojpeg.c buffer overflow
|libtiff-ojpeg-bo (66774)||High Risk|
LibTiff is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the tif_ojpeg.c. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted image file, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
