RHEL 2.1 / 3 : ImageMagick (RHSA-2004:636)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 15946
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.

Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated ImageMagick packages that fixes a buffer overflow are now available.

ImageMagick(TM) is an image display and manipulation tool for the X Window System.

A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the ImageMagick image handler. An attacker could create a carefully crafted image file with an improper EXIF information in such a way that it would cause ImageMagick to execute arbitrary code when processing the image. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0981 to this issue.

David Eisenstein has reported that our previous fix for CVE-2004-0827, a heap overflow flaw, was incomplete. An attacker could create a carefully crafted BMP file in such a way that it could cause ImageMagick to execute arbitrary code when processing the image. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0827 to this issue.

Users of ImageMagick should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch, and is not vulnerable to this issue.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
