CVE-2009-0163

Published: 23 April 2009

Integer overflow in the TIFF image decoding routines in CUPS 1.3.9 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted TIFF image, which is not properly handled by the (1) _cupsImageReadTIFF function in the imagetops filter and (2) imagetoraster filter, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow.

without a reproducer, AFAICS cups with libtiff should be vulnerable
as libtiff doesn't error out on images with a height (ImageLength) larger
than 0x3fffffff (2^30-1)
