ImageMagick < 6.7.8-8 gif.c Memory Corruption

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains an application that is affected by a
memory corruption vulnerability.

Description :

The remote Windows host is running a version of ImageMagick prior to
version 6.7.8-8. It is, therefore, affected by a memory corruption
vulnerability in 'gif.c' while processing GIF comments because a null
character is used to terminate comments. Exploitation of this issue
could result in a denial of service or arbitrary code execution. To fix
this issue, raw memory handling is replaced with a 'ConcatenateString'
