[bullseye] - tiff <no-dsa> (Minor issue)
[buster] - tiff <ignored> (Minor issue, DoS) (v4.5.0rc1)
The specific PoC starts triggering with (v4.4.0)
but the patch mentions this is an older, more general issue, requiring prior incomplete fix from: (v4.0.10)
so let's assume versions < v4.4.0 are vulnerable.
