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 AcquireMagickMemory function in MagickCore/memory.c in ImageMagick 7.0.3.3 before 7.0.3.8 allows remote attackers to have unspecified impact via a crafted image, which triggers a memory allocation failure. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2016-8862.
