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

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 )
