ImageMagick 6.x < 6.9.4-5 / 7.x < 7.0.1-7 Multiple DoS

High Nessus Plugin ID 91819

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of ImageMagick installed on the remote Windows host is 6.x prior to 6.9.4-5 or 7.x prior to 7.0.1-7. It is, therefore, affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities :

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the DCM reader due to a NULL pointer dereference flaw that is triggered during the handling of photometric interpretation or the handling of frames. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to crash processes linked against the library.
(CVE-2016-5689)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the DCM reader due to improper computation of the pixel scaling table. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to crash processes linked against the library.
(CVE-2016-5690)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the DCM reader due to improper validation of pixel.red, pixel,green, and pixel.blue. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to crash processes linked against the library. (CVE-2016-5691)

- Multiple denial of service vulnerabilities exist in multiple functions in viff.c due to improper handling of a saturation of exceptions. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these issues to crash processes linked against the library. (CVE-2016-10066, CVE-2016-10067)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the ThrowReaderException() function in mat.c due to improper handling of frame numbers in a crafted MAT file. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to crash processes linked against the library.
(CVE-2016-10069)

Solution

Upgrade to ImageMagick version 6.9.4-5 / 7.0.1-7 or later.

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