GLSA-200609-14 : ImageMagick: Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 22458
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200609-14 (ImageMagick: Multiple Vulnerabilities)
Tavis Ormandy of the Google Security Team discovered a stack and heap buffer overflow in the GIMP XCF Image decoder and multiple heap and integer overflows in the SUN bitmap decoder. Damian Put discovered a heap overflow in the SGI image decoder.
An attacker may be able to create a specially crafted image that, when processed with ImageMagick, executes arbitrary code with the privileges of the executing user.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll ImageMagick users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-gfx/imagemagick-184.108.40.206'
