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-200611-07
(GraphicsMagick: PALM and DCM buffer overflows)

M. Joonas Pihlaja has reported that a boundary error exists within the
ReadDCMImage() function of coders/dcm.c, causing the improper handling
of DCM images. Pihlaja also reported that there are several boundary
errors in the ReadPALMImage() function of coders/palm.c, similarly
causing the improper handling of PALM images.

Impact :

An attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted DCM or PALM
image with GraphicsMagick, and possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running GraphicsMagick.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
