Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : imagemagick (MDVSA-2015:105)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated imagemagick package fixes security vulnerabilities :

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way ImageMagick handled PSD
images that use RLE encoding. An attacker could create a malicious PSD
image file that, when opened in ImageMagick, would cause ImageMagick
to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges
of the user running ImageMagick (CVE-2014-1958).

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way ImageMagick writes PSD
images when the input data has a large number of unlabeled layers
(CVE-2014-2030).

ImageMagick is vulnerable to a denial of service due to out-of-bounds
memory accesses in the resize code (CVE-2014-8354), PCX parser
(CVE-2014-8355), DCM decoder (CVE-2014-8562), and JPEG decoder
(CVE-2014-8716).
