It was discovered that LibTIFF incorrectly handled certain malformed
images using the DOTRANGE tag. If a user or automated system were
tricked into opening a specially crafted TIFF image, a remote attacker
could crash the application, leading to a denial of service, or possibly
execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
