New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9


An application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerability


The version of ImageMagick installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 7.0.8-35. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- A 'use of uninitialized value' vulnerability in the WriteJP2Image function in coders/jp2.c. (CVE-2019-12977)

- A 'use of uninitialized value' vulnerability in the ReadPANGOImage function in coders/pango.c. (CVE-2019-12978)

- A 'use of uninitialized value' vulnerability in the SyncImageSettings function in MagickCore/image.c. This is related to AcquireImage in magick/image.c. (CVE-2019-12979)

Note that the application may also be affected by additional vulnerabilities. Refer to the vendor for additional information.


Upgrade to ImageMagick version 7.0.8-35 or later. Note that you may also need to manually uninstall the vulnerable version from the system.
