Ubuntu 5.04 / 5.10 / 6.06 LTS / 6.10 : imagemagick vulnerability (USN-372-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27953
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionM. Joonas Pihlaja discovered that ImageMagick did not sufficiently verify the validity of PALM and DCM images. When processing a specially crafted image with an application that uses imagemagick, this could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the application's privileges.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
