openSUSE 10 Security Update : ImageMagick (ImageMagick-2235)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27105


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


Two security problems were found in GraphicsMagick which are also present in ImageMagick.

CVE-2006-5456: Multiple buffer overflows in ImageMagick allowed user-assisted attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via (1) a DCM image that is not properly handled by the ReadDCMImage function in coders/dcm.c, or (2) a PALM image that is not properly handled by the ReadPALMImage function in coders/palm.c.

Additionaly a segfault regression when converting a PGM image was fixed on SLE 10.


Update the affected ImageMagick packages.
