This was tested in Ubuntu 14.04 (64bit) but the issue exists even in the CVS libtiff version. Please find attached the compressed test case (otherwise it can kill my browser since gdk-pixbuf is loading tiff files in the preview dialog!). You can test it executing: $ tiffdither oom.tif /dev/null If you run it with ltrace, you can see some very large reallocs: libtiff.so.5->realloc(0, 1636178024) = 0x7f71a42b6010 libtiff.so.5->realloc(0, 1636178024) = 0x7f7142a54010 Upstream was notified but there is still no fix.
