Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the ImageMagick packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated ImageMagick packages that fix a denial of service issue are now
available.

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

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

A denial of service bug was found in the way ImageMagick parses XWD files.
A user or program executing ImageMagick to process a malicious XWD file can
cause ImageMagick to enter an infinite loop causing a denial of service
condition. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the name CVE-2005-1739 to this issue.

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