Fixed In Version: OpenEXR 2.5.4
Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
There is a flaw in OpenEXR's dataWindowForTile function. An attacker who is able to submit a crafted file to be processed by OpenEXR could trigger an integer overflow, leading to an out-of-bounds write on the heap. The greatest impact of this flaw is to application availability, with some potential impact to data integrity as well.

Upstream PR which references patch commit and confirms it's association with aforementioned oss-fuzz report: https://github.com/AcademySoftwareFoundation/openexr/pull/831

Flaw summary:

An integer overflow in IlmImf/ImfTiledMisc.cpp function dataWindowForTile(), when dataWindow.min + tileSize > INT_MAX, could lead to an out-of-bounds write of heap buffer. The data written does not appear to be directly controllable via this flaw, but could be combined with other flaws to achieve a greater impact.
