NewStart CGSL CORE 5.04 / MAIN 5.04 : ImageMagick Vulnerability (NS-SA-2021-0100)

high Nessus Plugin ID 154636


The remote NewStart CGSL host is affected by a vulnerability.


The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version CORE 5.04 / MAIN 5.04, has ImageMagick packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability:

- ImageMagick before 6.9.11-40 and 7.x before 7.0.10-40 mishandles the -authenticate option, which allows setting a password for password-protected PDF files. The user-controlled password was not properly escaped/sanitized and it was therefore possible to inject additional shell commands via coders/pdf.c.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade the vulnerable CGSL ImageMagick packages. Note that updated packages may not be available yet. Please contact ZTE for more information.
