Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : ImageMagick (MDKSA-2007:147)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

A number of vulnerabilities were discovered in how ImageMagick handles
DCM and XWD image files. If a user were tricked into processing a
specially crafted image file with an application that uses
ImageMagick, an attacker could cause a heap-based buffer overflow and
possibly execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these 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:C)
Public Exploit Available : false
