Created ImageMagick tracking bugs for this issue:

Depending on the image dimensions, number_pixels can be quite large
> number_pixels=(MagickSizeType) image->columns*image->rows;

This causes problems when adding this to "p" to calculate the address. It could wrap around and cause an access to invalid memory.

I'm not sure if the upstream patch properly protects against that.
