In LibTIFF 4.0.7, the program processes BMP images without verifying that biWidth and biHeight in the bitmap-information header match the actual input, leading to a heap-based buffer over-read in bmp2tiff.
likely only affects bmp2tiff binary, which was removed in 4.0.7 or 4.0.8
proposed patch in upstream bug bmp2tiff removed in recent versions same fix as CVE-2017-5563 we will not be fixing this issue in precise/esm
