Fedora Core 5 : ImageMagick-6.2.5.4-4.2.1.fc5.4 (2006-929)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

Tavis Ormandy discovered several integer and buffer overflow flaws in
the way ImageMagick decodes XCF, SGI, and Sun bitmap graphic files. An
attacker could execute arbitrary code on a victim's machine if they
were able to trick the victim into opening a specially crafted image
file. (CVE-2006-3743, CVE-2006-4144)

Users of ImageMagick should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
