A Gentoo Linux Security Advisory reports:

Tavis Ormandy of the Gentoo Linux Security Audit Team discovered a stack based buffer overflow in the libTIFF library when reading a TIFF image with a malformed BitsPerSample tag. Successful exploitation would require the victim to open a specially crafted TIFF image, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
