CVE ID: CVE-2016-5323
Tested system version:
       fedora23 32bit
       fedora23 64bit
       CentOS Linux release 7.1.1503 64bit


t was always corrupted when I use tiffcrop command followed by a crafted TIFF image in function _TIFFFax3fillruns () without checking the value of divisor, it causes a divide by zero flaw. Attackers cound exploit this issue to cause denial-of-service.

Here is the stack info:
gdb –args ./tiffcrop _TIFFFax3fillruns.tif tmpout.tif
