Illegal read occurs in the _ setrow function in thumbnail.c when using thumbnail command, which allows attackers to exploit this issue to cause denial-of-service.

523  for (y = 0; y < nrows; y++) {
524      const uint8* src = rows[y] + off;
525      acc += bits[*src++ & mask0];

gdb  --args  thumbnail  setrow.tif  tmpout.tif
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
