Fedora Core 5 : ImageMagick- (2006-588)

High Nessus Plugin ID 24115


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


ImageMagick's DisplayImageCommand contains a heap overflow flaw. It is possible to pass an unexpanded glob to ImageMagick which will be expanded by ImageMagick and overflow heap memory.

The updated packages fix this problem.

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.
