Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : ImageMagick (MDKSA-2005:065)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A format string vulnerability was discovered in ImageMagick, in the
way it handles filenames. An attacker could execute arbitrary code on
a victim's machine provided they could trick them into opening a file
with a special name (CVE-2005-0397).

As well, Andrei Nigmatulin discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in
ImageMagick's image handler. An attacker could create a special
PhotoShop Document (PSD) image file in such a way that it would cause
ImageMagick to execute arbitrary code when processing the image

Other vulnerabilities were discovered in ImageMagick versions prior to
6.0 :

A bug in the way that ImageMagick handles TIFF tags was discovered. It
was possible that a TIFF image with an invalid tag could cause
ImageMagick to crash (CVE-2005-0759).

A bug in ImageMagick's TIFF decoder was discovered where a specially-
crafted TIFF image could cause ImageMagick to crash (CVE-2005-0760).

A bug in ImageMagick's PSD parsing was discovered where a specially-
crafted PSD file could cause ImageMagick to crash (CVE-2005-0761).

Finally, a heap overflow bug was discovered in ImageMagick's SGI
parser. If an attacker could trick a user into opening a specially-
crafted SGI image file, ImageMagick would execute arbitrary code

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
