Description

Integer overflow in the XMakeImage function in magick/xwindow.c in ImageMagick 6.5.2-8, and GraphicsMagick, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted TIFF file, which triggers a buffer overflow. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information.
