Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

An iDEFENSE Security Advisory reports :

Remote exploitation of a buffer overflow vulnerability in The
ImageMagick's Project's ImageMagick PSD image-decoding module could
allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.

Exploitation may allow attackers to run arbitrary code on a victim's
computer if the victim opens a specially formatted image. Such images
could be delivered by e-mail or HTML, in some cases, and would likely
not raise suspicion on the victim's part. Exploitation is also
possible when a web-based application uses ImageMagick to process
user-uploaded image files.
