Ubuntu 5.04 / 5.10 / 6.06 LTS / 6.10 : imagemagick vulnerability (USN-372-1)

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 :

M. Joonas Pihlaja discovered that ImageMagick did not sufficiently
verify the validity of PALM and DCM images. When processing a
specially crafted image with an application that uses imagemagick,
this could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the
application'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 :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.1
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:H/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.4
