CVE-2019-12977 analysis


I had a look at CVE-2019-12977:

This allows attackers to manipulate the JP2 compression arguments passed by
imagemagick to openjpeg. As long as openjpeg sanitizes its arguments, this
issue does not have any security impact. Any useful exploit of this issue
requires to chain it with another vulnerability in openjpeg.

Also: I suspect that these compression arguments can actually be
arbitrarily set by the user, without exploiting any kind of vulnerability.
In other words, this issue might be completely irrelevant from a security
standpoint because it does not allow the user to do more than what he can
already do.
