ImageMagick < 6.5.2-9 magick/xwindow.c XMakeImage() Function TIFF File Handling Overflow

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains an application that is affected by
an integer overflow vulnerability.

Description :

The remote Windows host is running a version of ImageMagick earlier
than 6.5.2-9. Such versions reportedly fail to properly handle
malformed 'TIFF' files in the 'XMakeImage()' function. If an attacker
can trick a user on the remote host into opening a specially crafted
file using the affected application, he can leverage this flaw to
execute arbitrary code on the remote host subject to the user's
privileges.

Solution :

Upgrade to ImageMagick version 6.5.2-9 or later.

Note that you may need to manually uninstall the vulnerable version
from the system.
