Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : ImageMagick (MDKSA-2005:065)
High Nessus Plugin ID 17677
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA format string vulnerability was discovered in ImageMagick, in the way it handles filenames. An attacker could execute arbitrary code on a victim's machine provided they could trick them into opening a file with a special name (CVE-2005-0397).
As well, Andrei Nigmatulin discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in ImageMagick's image handler. An attacker could create a special PhotoShop Document (PSD) image file in such a way that it would cause ImageMagick to execute arbitrary code when processing the image (CVE-2005-0005).
Other vulnerabilities were discovered in ImageMagick versions prior to 6.0 :
A bug in the way that ImageMagick handles TIFF tags was discovered. It was possible that a TIFF image with an invalid tag could cause ImageMagick to crash (CVE-2005-0759).
A bug in ImageMagick's TIFF decoder was discovered where a specially- crafted TIFF image could cause ImageMagick to crash (CVE-2005-0760).
A bug in ImageMagick's PSD parsing was discovered where a specially- crafted PSD file could cause ImageMagick to crash (CVE-2005-0761).
Finally, a heap overflow bug was discovered in ImageMagick's SGI parser. If an attacker could trick a user into opening a specially- crafted SGI image file, ImageMagick would execute arbitrary code (CVE-2005-0762).
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
