Synopsis :

The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2010:0652 :

Updated ImageMagick packages that fix one security issue and one bug
are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from
the CVE link in the References section.

ImageMagick is an image display and manipulation tool for the X Window
System that can read and write multiple image formats.

An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was
found in the ImageMagick routine responsible for creating X11 images.
An attacker could create a specially crafted image file that, when
opened by a victim, would cause ImageMagick to crash or, potentially,
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2009-1882)

This update also fixes the following bug :

* previously, portions of certain RGB images on the right side were
not rendered and left black when converting or displaying them. With
this update, RGB images display correctly. (BZ#625058)

Users of ImageMagick are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to correct these issues. All running
instances of ImageMagick must be restarted for this update to take
effect.
