USN35-1 : imagemagick vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
imagemagick vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- imagemagick
- libmagick++6
- libmagick++6-dev
- libmagick6
- libmagick6-dev
- perlmagick


Description :

Markus Meissner discovered several potential buffer overflows in some
image decoding functions of ImageMagick. Decoding a malicious BMP or
DIB image or AVI video might result in execution of arbitrary code
with the user's rights.

Since imagemagick can be used in custom printing systems, this also
might lead to privilege escalation (execute code with the printer
spooler's rights). However, Ubuntu's standard printing system does
not use imagemagick, thus there is no risk of privilege escalation in
a standard installation.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- imagemagick-6.0.2.5-1ubuntu1.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- libmagick++6-6.0.2.5-1ubuntu1.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- libmagick++6-dev-6.0.2.5-1ubuntu1.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- libmagick6-6.0.2.5-1ubuntu1.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- libmagick6-dev-6.0.2.5-1ubuntu1.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- perlmagick-6.0.2.5-1ubuntu1.2 (Ubuntu 4.10)
