Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA702] DSA-702-1 imagemagick

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-702-1 imagemagick

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in ImageMagick, a
commonly used image manipulation library. These problems can be
exploited by a carefully crafted graphic image. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
problems:
Tavis Ormandy discovered a format string vulnerability in the
filename handling code which permits a remote attacker to cause a
denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code.
Andrei Nigmatulin discovered a denial of service condition which
can be caused by an invalid tag in a TIFF image.
Andrei Nigmatulin discovered that the TIFF decoder is vulnerable
to accessing memory out of bounds which will result in a
segmentation fault.
Andrei Nigmatulin discovered a buffer overflow in the SGI parser
which permits a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code via a
specially crafted SGI image file.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 5.4.4.5-1woody6.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 6.0.6.2-2.2.
We recommend that you upgrade your imagemagick package.
