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

In ImageMagick 7.0.6-3, a missing NULL assignment was found in coders/png.c, leading to an invalid free in the function RelinquishMagickMemory in MagickCore/memory.c, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service.
