Title: ImageMagick: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 201203-09)
Date: March 06, 2012
Vulnerabilities found in ImageMagick might allow remote attackers
to execute arbitrary code.
ImageMagick is a collection of tools and libraries for manipulating
various image formats.
Vulnerable: < 126.96.36.199
Unaffected: >= 188.8.131.52
Architectures: All supported architectures
Two vulnerabilities have been found in ImageMagick:
- Incorrect offset and count values in the ResolutionUnit tag in EXIF
IFD could cause memory corruption (CVE-2012-0247).
- IOP tag offsets pointing to the beginning of an IFD could cause an
infinite loop of ImageMagick parsing the IFD structure (CVE-2012-0248).
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted image,
possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ImageMagick users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/imagemagick-184.108.40.206"
