Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2017-05-09 04:39:46 UTC
CVE-2017-7275 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2017-7275):
  The ReadPCXImage function in coders/pcx.c in ImageMagick 7.0.4.9 allows
  remote attackers to cause a denial of service (attempted large memory
  allocation and application crash) via a crafted file. NOTE: this
  vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2016-8862 and
  CVE-2016-8866.

Upstream is unable to reproduce.

Upstream tried further mitigation via commit d94d85622f120f82240921ae7a83a72afcb79ddf which is available since v6.9.6-6 (current stable version in Gentoo is 6.9.7.4).

Issue pending closure on upstream. AJSAN issue.

You are getting an allocation error because the size of the colormap is ridiculous high. On our systems we can allocate this but it then fails at a later moment.
