Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1168] DSA-1168-1 imagemagick

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1168-1 imagemagick

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Imagemagick, a
collection of image manipulation tools, which may lead to the execution
of arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:
Eero Häkkinen discovered that the display tool allocates insufficient
memory for globbing patterns, which might lead to a buffer overflow.
Tavis Ormandy from the Google Security Team discovered that the Sun
bitmap decoder performs insufficient input sanitising, which might
lead to buffer overflows and the execution of arbitrary code.
Tavis Ormandy from the Google Security Team discovered that the XCF
image decoder performs insufficient input sanitising, which might
lead to buffer overflows and the execution of arbitrary code.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 6:6.0.6.2-2.7.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your imagemagick packages.
