RHSA-2004-480: ImageMagick

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the ImageMagick packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated ImageMagick packages that fix a BMP loader vulnerability are now
available.

ImageMagick(TM) is an image display and manipulation tool for the X Window
System.

A heap overflow flaw has been discovered in the ImageMagick image handler.
A possible hacker could create a carefully crafted BMP file in such a way that it
could cause ImageMagick to execute arbitrary code when processing the
image. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the name CVE-2004-0827 to this issue.

Users of ImageMagick should upgrade to this updated package, which contains
a backported patch, and is not vulnerable to this issue.
