DoS (Denial of Service)
This includes vulnerabilities ranging from excessive resource consumption (e.g. causing a system to use a lot of memory) to crashing an application or an entire system.
This covers vulnerabilities where malicious people are able to gain system access and execute arbitrary code with the privileges of a local user.
Red Hat has issued an update for ImageMagick. This fixes multiple vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and potentially compromise a vulnerable system.
Updated packages are available via Red Hat Network.
