RHEL 4 : ImageMagick (RHSA-2005:320)

Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated ImageMagick packages that fix a format string bug 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(TM) is an image display and manipulation tool for the X
Window System which can read and write multiple image formats.

A format string bug was found in the way ImageMagick handles
filenames. An attacker could execute arbitrary code on a victim's
machine if they were able to trick the victim into opening a file with
a specially crafted name. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0397 to this

Additionally, a bug was fixed which caused ImageMagick(TM) to
occasionally segfault when writing TIFF images to standard output.

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