Integer signedness error in the cmsAllocGamma function in src/cmsgamma.c in Little cms color engine (aka lcms) before 1.17 allows attackers to have an unknown impact via a file containing a certain "number of entries" value, which is interpreted improperly, leading to an allocation of insufficient memory.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
