[GLSA-200609-14] ImageMagick: Multiple Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
ImageMagick: Multiple Vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200609-14
(ImageMagick: Multiple Vulnerabilities)

Tavis Ormandy of the Google Security Team discovered a stack and heap
buffer overflow in the GIMP XCF Image decoder and multiple heap and
integer overflows in the SUN bitmap decoder. Damian Put discovered a
heap overflow in the SGI image decoder.


A possible hacker may be able to create a specially crafted image that, when
processed with ImageMagick, executes arbitrary code with the rights
of the executing user.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All ImageMagick users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/imagemagick-"

Network Security Threat Level: Medium
