Ubuntu 5.10 / 6.06 LTS / 6.10 : imagemagick vulnerabilities (USN-422-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2016 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 :

Vladimir Nadvornik discovered that the fix for CVE-2006-5456, released
in USN-372-1, did not correctly solve the original flaw in PALM image
handling. By tricking a user into processing a specially crafted image
with an application that uses imagemagick, an attacker could 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
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
CVSS Temporal Score : 8.1
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:ND)
