New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

An application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of ImageMagick installed on the remote Windows host is 6.x prior to 6.9.4-3 or 7.x prior to 7.0.1-4. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An out-of-bounds read error exists in the VerticalFilter() function in coders/dds.c due to improper handling of malformed DDS files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted DDS file, to crash processes linked against the library, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-5687)

- An overflow condition exists in the ReadWPGImage() function in coders/wpg.c due to improper validation of user-supplied input when handling WPG files. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to open a specially crafted WPG file, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5688)

- An invalid write error exists in the OpenPixelCache() function in MagickCore/cache.c due to improper handling of resources. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5688)

Solution

Upgrade to ImageMagick version 6.9.4-3 / 7.0.1-4 or later.

Note that you may need to manually uninstall the vulnerable version from the system.
