Doc Text:
A flaw was found in libtiff's tiffcrop utility that has a uint32_t underflow that can lead to an out-of-bounds read and write. This flaw allows an attacker who supplies a crafted file to tiffcrop (likely via tricking a user to run tiffcrop on it with certain parameters)to cause a crash or, in some cases, further exploitation.
