New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description

The QuantumTransferMode function in coders/tiff.c in GraphicsMagick 1.3.25 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and application crash) via a small samples per pixel value in a CMYKA TIFF file.(CVE-2017-6335)

The WPG format reader in GraphicsMagick 1.3.25 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and crash) via vectors related to a ReferenceBlob and a NULL pointer.(CVE-2016-7997)

Heap-based buffer overflow in the WPG format reader in GraphicsMagick 1.3.25 and earlier allows remote attackers to have unspecified impact via a colormap with a large number of entries. (CVE-2016-7996 )

The MagickMalloc function in magick/memory.c in GraphicsMagick 1.3.25 allows remote attackers to have unspecified impact via a crafted image, which triggers a memory allocation failure and a 'file truncation error for corrupt file.' (CVE-2016-8684)

The ReadSCTImage function in coders/sct.c in GraphicsMagick 1.3.25 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) via a crafted SCT header. (CVE-2016-8682)

The ReadPCXImage function in coders/pcx.c in GraphicsMagick 1.3.25 allows remote attackers to have unspecified impact via a crafted image, which triggers a memory allocation failure and a 'file truncation error for corrupt file.' (CVE-2016-8683)

The MagickRealloc function in memory.c in Graphicsmagick 1.3.25 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via large dimensions in a jpeg image. (CVE-2016-9830)

Integer underflow in the parse8BIM function in coders/meta.c in GraphicsMagick 1.3.25 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted 8BIM chunk, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow. (CVE-2016-7800 )
