A vulnerability was found in GraphicsMagick 1.3.25 (Image Processing Software). It has been classified as problematic. This affects the function ReadMATImage of the file coders/mat.c of the component MAT Object Handler. The manipulation as part of a MATLAB Image leads to a resource consumption vulnerability. CWE is classifying the issue as CWE-400. The software does not properly control the allocation and maintenance of a limited resource, thereby enabling an actor to influence the amount of resources consumed, eventually leading to the exhaustion of available resources. This is going to have an impact on availability.

The bug was discovered 07/02/2017. The weakness was presented 07/03/2017 (Website). The advisory is shared at hg.code.sf.net.
