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 AcquireCacheNexus function in magick/pixel_cache.c in GraphicsMagick before 1.3.28 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap overwrite) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted image file, because a pixel staging area is not used.
