Ubuntu

ImageMagick before 7.0.9-0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service because XML_PARSE_HUGE is not properly restricted in coders/svg.c, related to SVG and libxml2.

Weakness

The product does not properly control the amount of recursion which takes place, consuming excessive resources, such as allocated memory or the program stack.
