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

high Nessus Plugin ID 14796
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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.
