Lyx for Windows installer 2.3.3-1 installs ImageMagick 7.0.7-27.  This
version is subject to multiple buffer overflows (stack and heap) and
several other vulnerabilities, allowing remote code execution if the user
opens a LyX document incorporating a specially-crafted image.

Solution:  Upgrade to ImageMagick 7.0.8-56 or newer in the LyX installer
