Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : imagemagick (MDVSA-2015:105)

high Nessus Plugin ID 82358


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


Updated imagemagick package fixes security vulnerabilities :

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way ImageMagick handled PSD images that use RLE encoding. An attacker could create a malicious PSD image file that, when opened in ImageMagick, would cause ImageMagick to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running ImageMagick (CVE-2014-1958).

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way ImageMagick writes PSD images when the input data has a large number of unlabeled layers (CVE-2014-2030).

ImageMagick is vulnerable to a denial of service due to out-of-bounds memory accesses in the resize code (CVE-2014-8354), PCX parser (CVE-2014-8355), DCM decoder (CVE-2014-8562), and JPEG decoder (CVE-2014-8716).
