ImageMagick 7.1.0-49 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 171167


The remote Windows host has an application installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote Windows host has a version of ImageMagick installed that is 7.1.0-49. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities:

- Denial of Service (DoS). When it parses a PNG image (e.g., for resize), the convert process could be left waiting for stdin input. (CVE-2022-44267)
- Information Disclosure. When it parses a PNG image (e.g., for resize), the resulting image could have embedded the content of an arbitrary file (if the magick binary has permissions to read it) (CVE-2022-44268)

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


Upgrade to an unaffected version of ImageMagick.

Note that you may need to manually uninstall the vulnerable version from the system.
