Libtiff crash on 5.50?

I saw today a buzz on various websites about a youtube video showing a tiff file crashing OFW 5.50, apparently a file created by me.

I am not directly related to this video.

I haven’t looked at the file yet, but it is possible that this is an OLD file I created a while ago and which has proven to be unexploitable beyond firmware 4.20. See here and here (note how old these posts are)

There is also a possibility that someone else found a crash and decided to use my name in the file for some reason, but I find this highly unlikely.

So my official statement right now is the following: Not a fake, not an exploit, just a crash

    Freeze then power off.
    There is no way to brick a PSP with a simple crash, without “intentionally” attempt to work on the flash memory.

    i think that guy in the video doesnt have a psp 2000 with ta-088v3
    think he has lower,every where on the internet i read that it not compatible with the psp 2000: ta-088v3 and the ta-090v1(this is actually unconfirmed) and the psp:3000 ta-090v2
    but still whats your opionion?

    if you use hellcat’s Recovery Flasher on a ta88v3 or on a PSP3000 YOU WILL BRICK IT, so just don’t do it.
