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

Heap-based buffer overflow in the IsPixelGray function in MagickCore/pixel-accessor.h in ImageMagick 7.0.3.8 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds heap read) via a crafted image file. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2016-9556.
