Ubuntu: imagemagick vulnerabilities Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Ubuntu Tavis Ormandy discovered several buffer overflows in imagemagick's Sun Raster and XCF (Gimp) image decoders. By tricking a user or automated system into processing a specially crafted image, this could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the users' privileges.
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-340-1         September 06, 2006

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 5.04:
  libmagick6                               6:

Ubuntu 5.10:
  libmagick6                               6:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
