Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Updated ImageMagick packages that fix a security flaw are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.

ImageMagick is an image display and manipulation tool for the X Window
System.

Andrei Nigmatulin discovered a heap based buffer overflow flaw in the
ImageMagick image handler. An attacker could create a carefully
crafted Photoshop Document (PSD) image in such a way that it would
cause ImageMagick to execute arbitrary code when processing the image.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2005-0005 to this issue.

Users of ImageMagick should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch, and are not vulnerable to this issue.
