The ReadWPGImage function in coders/wpg.c in GraphicsMagick 1.3.26 does not properly validate colormapped images, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (ImportIndexQuantumType invalid write and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a malformed WPG image.

Weakness

A NULL pointer dereference occurs when the application dereferences a pointer that it expects to be valid, but is NULL, typically causing a crash or exit.
