Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : imagemagick (MDVSA-2013:092)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 66104


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Updated imagemagick packages fix security vulnerability :

The Magick_png_malloc function in coders/png.c in ImageMagick 6.7.8-6 and earlier does not use the proper variable type for the allocation size, which might allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted PNG file that triggers incorrect memory allocation (CVE-2012-3437).


Update the affected packages.
