Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 7.10 : imagemagick vulnerability (USN-681-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 36745
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionIt was discovered that ImageMagick did not correctly handle certain malformed XCF images. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted image with an application that uses ImageMagick, an attacker could cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code with the user'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.
