Comment 4 Riccardo Schirone 2019-05-14 12:54:59 UTC
Decreasing Impact to Low and set Availability to Low, as when the program is compiled without ASAN, the program will usually just print an error message "MemoryAllocationFailed".

Comment 5 Riccardo Schirone 2019-05-14 13:13:15 UTC
Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of ImageMagick as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 as they already contained the patched code.
