Fedora Core 3 : ImageMagick- (2005-235)

High Nessus Plugin ID 19628


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


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 in a victims machine if they are 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.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected packages.
