GLSA-200501-37 : GraphicsMagick: PSD decoding heap overflow

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200501-37
(GraphicsMagick: PSD decoding heap overflow)

Andrei Nigmatulin discovered that handling a Photoshop Document
(PSD) file with more than 24 layers in ImageMagick could trigger a heap
overflow (GLSA 200501-26). GraphicsMagick is based on the same code and
therefore suffers from the same flaw.

Impact :

An attacker could potentially design a malicious PSD image file to
cause arbitrary code execution with the permissions of the user running
GraphicsMagick.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution :

All GraphicsMagick users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-gfx/graphicsmagick-1.1.5'

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
