New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

The AcquireQuantumPixels function in MagickCore/quantum.c in ImageMagick before 7.0.3-1 allows remote attackers to have unspecified impact via a crafted image file, which triggers a memory allocation failure.
