A vulnerability classified as critical has been found in GraphicsMagick 1.3.25 (Image Processing Software). This affects the function QuantumTransferMode of the file coders/tiff.c of the component RGB TIFF Handler. The manipulation as part of a Metadata leads to a memory corruption vulnerability. CWE is classifying the issue as CWE-119. The product performs operations on a memory buffer, but it can read from or write to a memory location that is outside of the intended boundary of the buffer. This is going to have an impact on confidentiality, integrity, and availability. The summary by CVE is:

When GraphicsMagick 1.3.25 processes an RGB TIFF picture (with metadata indicating a single sample per pixel) in coders/tiff.c, a buffer overflow occurs, related to QuantumTransferMode.
