Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:107: 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-2005:107 (ImageMagick).



A heap-based buffer overflow was found in the way that ImageMagick parses PNM
files. If a possible hacker can trick a victim into opening a specially crafted PNM
file, the attacker could execute arbitrary code on the victim's machine
(CVE-2005-1275).

As well, a Denial of Service vulnerability was found in the way that
ImageMagick parses XWD files. If a user or program executed ImageMagick to
process a malicious XWD file, ImageMagick will enter info an infinite loop
causing a DoS (CVE-2005-1739).

The updated packages have been patched to fix these issues.
