ImageMagick < 7.1.1-19 Use-After-Free DoS

medium Nessus Plugin ID 182680


The remote Windows host has an application installed that is affected by a use-after-free vulnerability.


The remote Windows host has a version of ImageMagick installed that is prior to 7.1.1-19. It is, therefore, affected by a use-after-free vulnerability that can lead to a denial of service.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to an unaffected version of ImageMagick.

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