New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.7

Synopsis

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

Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2016:1237 :

An update for ImageMagick is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

[Updated 18 July 2016] This advisory has been updated to push packages into the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Desktop channels. The packages included in this revised update have not been changed in any way from the packages included in the original advisory.

ImageMagick is an image display and manipulation tool for the X Window System that can read and write multiple image formats.

Security Fix(es) :

* It was discovered that ImageMagick did not properly sanitize certain input before using it to invoke processes. A remote attacker could create a specially crafted image that, when processed by an application using ImageMagick or an unsuspecting user using the ImageMagick utilities, would lead to arbitrary execution of shell commands with the privileges of the user running the application.
(CVE-2016-5118)

* It was discovered that ImageMagick did not properly sanitize certain input before passing it to the gnuplot delegate functionality. A remote attacker could create a specially crafted image that, when processed by an application using ImageMagick or an unsuspecting user using the ImageMagick utilities, would lead to arbitrary execution of shell commands with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2016-5239)

* Multiple flaws have been discovered in ImageMagick. A remote attacker could, for example, create specially crafted images that, when processed by an application using ImageMagick or an unsuspecting user using the ImageMagick utilities, would result in a memory corruption and, potentially, execution of arbitrary code, a denial of service, or an application crash. (CVE-2015-8896, CVE-2015-8895, CVE-2016-5240, CVE-2015-8897, CVE-2015-8898)
