New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

Synopsis

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

Description

Updated ImageMagick packages that fix a heap based buffer overflow are now available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

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

Andrei Nigmatulin discovered a heap based buffer overflow flaw in the ImageMagick image handler. An attacker could create a carefully crafted Photoshop Document (PSD) image 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-2005-0005 to this issue.

A format string bug was found in the way ImageMagick handles filenames. An attacker could execute arbitrary code on a victim's machine if they were able to trick the victim into opening a file with a specially crafted name. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0397 to this issue.

A bug was found in the way ImageMagick handles TIFF tags. It is possible that a TIFF image file with an invalid tag could cause ImageMagick to crash. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0759 to this issue.

A bug was found in ImageMagick's TIFF decoder. It is possible that a specially crafted TIFF image file could cause ImageMagick to crash.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0760 to this issue.

A bug was found in the way ImageMagick parses PSD files. It is possible that a specially crafted PSD file could cause ImageMagick to crash. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0761 to this issue.

A heap overflow bug was found in ImageMagick's SGI parser. It is possible that an attacker could execute arbitrary code by tricking a user into opening a specially crafted SGI image file. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0762 to this issue.

Users of ImageMagick should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches, and are not vulnerable to these issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
