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

A use-after-free in RenderFreetype in MagickCore/annotate.c in ImageMagick 7.0.7-4 Q16 allows attackers to crash the application via a crafted font file, because the FT_Done_Glyph function (from FreeType 2) is called at an incorrect place in the ImageMagick code.
