Scientific Linux Security Update : ImageMagick on SL6.x, SL7.x i386/x86_64

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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Security Fix(es) :

- It was discovered that ImageMagick did not properly
sanitize certain input before using it to invoke
processes. A remote attacker could create a specially
crafted image that, when processed by an application
using ImageMagick or an unsuspecting user using the
ImageMagick utilities, would lead to arbitrary execution
of shell commands with the privileges of the user
running the application. (CVE-2016-5118)

- It was discovered that ImageMagick did not properly
sanitize certain input before passing it to the gnuplot
delegate functionality. A remote attacker could create a
specially crafted image that, when processed by an
application using ImageMagick or an unsuspecting user
using the ImageMagick utilities, would lead to arbitrary
execution of shell commands with the privileges of the
user running the application. (CVE-2016-5239)

- Multiple flaws have been discovered in ImageMagick. A
remote attacker could, for example, create specially
crafted images that, when processed by an application
using ImageMagick or an unsuspecting user using the
ImageMagick utilities, would result in a memory
corruption and, potentially, execution of arbitrary
code, a denial of service, or an application crash.
(CVE-2015-8896, CVE-2015-8895, CVE-2016-5240,
CVE-2015-8897, CVE-2015-8898)
