GLSA-201203-09 : ImageMagick: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code
High Nessus Plugin ID 58219
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201203-09 (ImageMagick: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Two vulnerabilities have been found in ImageMagick:
Incorrect offset and count values in the ResolutionUnit tag in EXIF IFD could cause memory corruption (CVE-2012-0247).
IOP tag offsets pointing to the beginning of an IFD could cause an infinite loop of ImageMagick parsing the IFD structure (CVE-2012-0248).
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted image, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service condition.
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-126.96.36.199'
