Ubuntu 5.04 / 5.10 / 6.06 LTS : imagemagick vulnerability (USN-337-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Damian Put discovered a buffer overflow in imagemagick's SGI file
format decoder. By tricking an user or automated system into
processing a specially crafted SGI image, this could be exploited to
execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
