Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2005-071: ImageMagick

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the ImageMagick packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated ImageMagick packages that fix a security flaw are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat
Security Response Team.

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

Andrei Nigmatulin discovered a heap based buffer overflow flaw in the
ImageMagick image handler. A possible hacker could create a carefully crafted
Photoshop Document (PSD) image in such a way that it would cause
ImageMagick to execute arbitrary code when processing the image. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2005-0005 to this issue.

Users of ImageMagick should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch, and are not vulnerable to this issue.
