NULL Pointer Dereference


Severity Medium
Score 6.5/10


A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in ImageMagick in versions prior to 7.0.10-31 and in ImageMagick6 versions prior to 6.9.11-31 in ReadSVGImage() in coders/svg.c. This issue is due to not checking the return value from libxml2's xmlCreatePushParserCtxt() and uses the value directly, which leads to a crash and segmentation fault.
