Description Christopher Díaz Riveros (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2017-07-13 14:16:32 UTC
From $URL:

The ReadJPEGImage function in coders/jpeg.c in GraphicsMagick 1.3.26 creates a pixel cache before a successful read of a scanline, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource consumption) via crafted JPEG files.


Updates are available. 

Comment 1 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-07-14 07:03:27 UTC
The commit mentions:
JNG: Fix double frees caused by changeset 15060:d445af60a8d5 commited on 2017-07-06

However the tag for 1.3.26 was done on:
Tue, 04 Jul 2017 16:31:33 -0500 (9 days ago)

i.e. the issue didn't go in any release
