  Severity: 3
      Type: Remote

A vulnerability has been reported in LibTIFF, which can be exploited by

malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) or  to  potentially

The  vulnerability is  caused  due  to  a  boundary  error  within  the

"LZWDecodeCompat()" function in libtiff/tif_lzw.c. This can be exploited
to cause a buffer underflow via a specially crafted TIFF file.
