MDKSA-2005:065: ImageMagick

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the ImageMagick package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:065 (ImageMagick).



A format string vulnerability was discovered in ImageMagick, in the way it
handles filenames. A possible hacker could execute arbitrary code on a victim's
machine provided they could trick them into opening a file with a special name
(CVE-2005-0397).

As well, Andrei Nigmatulin discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in
ImageMagick's image handler. A possible hacker could create a special PhotoShop
Document (PSD) image file in such a way that it would cause ImageMagick to
execute arbitray code when processing the image (CVE-2005-0005).

Other vulnerabilities were discovered in ImageMagick versions prior to 6.0:

A bug in the way that ImageMagick handles TIFF tags was discovered. It was
possible that a TIFF image with an invalid tag could cause ImageMagick to crash
(CVE-2005-0759).

A bug in ImageMagick's TIFF decoder was discovered where a specially- crafted
TIFF image could cause ImageMagick to crash (CVE-2005-0760).

A bug in ImageMagick's PSD parsing was discovered where a specially- crafted
PSD file could cause ImageMagick to crash (CVE-2005-0761).

Finally, a heap overflow bug was discovered in ImageMagick's SGI parser. If an
attacker could trick a user into opening a specially- crafted SGI image file,
ImageMagick would execute arbitrary code (CVE-2005-0762).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
