Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : ImageMagick (MDKSA-2004:102)

High Nessus Plugin ID 14796


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


Several buffer overflow vulnerabilities in ImageMagick were discovered by Marcus Meissner from SUSE. These vulnerabilities would allow an attacker to create a malicious image or video file in AVI, BMP, or DIB formats which could crash the reading process. It may be possible to create malicious images that could also allow for the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the invoking user or process.

The updated packages provided are patched to correct these problems.


Update the affected packages.
