CVE-2017-14165

Published: 06 September 2017

The ReadSUNImage function in coders/sun.c in GraphicsMagick 1.3.26 has an issue where memory allocation is excessive because it depends only on a length field in a header. This may lead to remote denial of service in the MagickMalloc function in magick/memory.c.

From the Ubuntu security team

It was discovered that GraphicsMagick incorrectly handled certain image files. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial of service or other unspecified impact.
