Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:024: 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-2006:024 (ImageMagick).

The delegate code in ImageMagick 6.2.4.x permits remote attackers to execute
arbitrary commands via shell metacharacters in a filename that is processed by
the display command. (CVE-2005-4601) A format string vulnerability in the
SetImageInfo function in image.c for ImageMagick 6.2.3, and other versions,
permits user-complicit attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and
possibly execute arbitrary code via a numeric format string specifier such as
%d in the file name, a variant of CVE-2005-0397, and as demonstrated using the
convert program. (CVE-2006-0082) The updated packages have been patched to
correct these issues.
