ImageMagick 7.x < 7.0.2-0 ReadSUNImage() Function SUN Image Handling DoS

This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has an application installed that is affected
by a denial of service vulnerability.

Description :

The remote Windows host has a version of ImageMagick installed that is
7.x prior to 7.0.2-0. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of
service vulnerability due to a flaw in the ReadSUNImage() function
in sun.c that is triggered during the handling of malformed SUN
images. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by
convincing a user to open a specially crafted SUN image, to crash
processes linked against the library, resulting in a denial of service

Solution :

Upgrade to ImageMagick version 7.0.2-0 or later.

Note that you may need to manually uninstall the vulnerable version
from the system.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.1
