thumbnail(1) was removed in 4.0.6-3 and DSA 3762, marking as fixed although technically still present in the source package
_TIFFVGetField isn't specific to thumbnail tool, there's to enhance that,
but treating this bug (as related to thumbmail) as fixed.
This seems a duplicate of CVE-2015-7554 ( ). At the very least, a generic fix for CVE-2015-7554 would also fix this one as the illegal write is at the exact same location in the code.
Reproducer file here:
With 4.0.6-2 (sid), I get a segfault.
With 4.0.3-12.3+deb8u1 (jessie), I get a segfault.
With 3.9.6-11+deb7u1 (wheezy), I get a failure: MissingRequired: ../CVE-2016-5318.tiff: TIFF directory is missing required "StripOffsets" field.
