[GLSA-200501-37] GraphicsMagick: PSD decoding heap overflow

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
GraphicsMagick: PSD decoding heap overflow

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200501-37
(GraphicsMagick: PSD decoding heap overflow)


Andrei Nigmatulin discovered that handling a Photoshop Document
(PSD) file with more than 24 layers in ImageMagick could trigger a heap
overflow (GLSA 200501-26). GraphicsMagick is based on the same code and
therefore suffers from the same flaw.

Impact

A possible hacker could potentially design a malicious PSD image file to
cause arbitrary code execution with the permissions of the user running
GraphicsMagick.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
