Missing Release of Resource after Effective Lifetime
In ImageMagick 7.0.6-3, a missing check for multidimensional data was found in coders/mat.c, leading to a memory leak in the function ReadImage in MagickCore/constitute.c, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service.
CWE-772 - Missing Release Of Resource After Effective Lifetime
'Missing release of resource after effective lifetime' is a weakness that occurs when software doesn't sufficiently release a resource (e.g. memory, CPU, disk space, etc.) after it is used. If not addressed, attackers can launch a denial of service attack (by allocating a resource and not releasing it).
