Description Christopher Díaz Riveros (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2017-07-13 13:56:43 UTC
From $URL:

The ReadMATImage function in coders\mat.c in ImageMagick 7.0.5-6 has a memory leak vulnerability that can cause memory exhaustion via a crafted MAT file, related to incorrect ordering of a SetImageExtent call.	


@Maintainers: Hi, could you please review the upstream and see if it affects any of tree's versions?

Hi Chris, seems this bug is old but a possible adjustment of the title might be required to match what upstream used for the CVE.
