Integer Overflow or Wraparound

CVE-2017-14173

Severity Medium
Score 6.5/10

Summary

In the function ReadTXTImage() in coders/txt.c in ImageMagick 7.0.6-10, an integer overflow might occur for the addition operation "GetQuantumRange(depth)+1" when "depth" is large, producing a smaller value than expected. As a result, an infinite loop would occur for a crafted TXT file that claims a very large "max_value" value.

CWE-190 - Integer Overflow or Wraparound

The software performs a calculation that can produce an integer overflow or wraparound, when the logic assumes that the resulting value will always be larger than the original value. This can introduce other weaknesses when the calculation is used for resource management or execution control.
