RHSA-2005-413: ImageMagick

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the ImageMagick packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated ImageMagick packages that fix a buffer overflow issue are now
available.

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

ImageMagick(TM) is an image display and manipulation tool for the X Window
System which can read and write multiple image formats.

A heap based buffer overflow bug was found in the way ImageMagick parses
PNM files. A possible hacker could execute arbitrary code on a victim's machine
if they were able to trick the victim into opening a specially crafted PNM
file. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2005-1275 to this issue.

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