=====================================================================
                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Low: ImageMagick security and bug fix update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2012:0301-03
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-0301.html
Issue date:        2012-02-21
CVE Names:         CVE-2010-4167 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated ImageMagick packages that fix one security issue and multiple bugs
are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

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

It was found that ImageMagick utilities tried to load ImageMagick
configuration files from the current working directory. If a user ran an
ImageMagick utility in an attacker-controlled directory containing a
specially-crafted ImageMagick configuration file, it could cause the
utility to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-4167)

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* Previously, the "identify -verbose" command failed with an assertion if
there was no image information available. An upstream patch has been
applied, so that GetImageOption() is now called correctly. Now, the
"identify -verbose" command works correctly even if no image information is
available. (BZ#502626)

* Previously, an incorrect use of the semaphore data type led to a
deadlock. As a consequence, the ImageMagick utility could become
unresponsive when converting JPEG files to PDF (Portable Document Format)
files. A patch has been applied to address the deadlock issue, and JPEG
files can now be properly converted to PDF files. (BZ#530592)

* Previously, running the "convert" command with the "-color" option failed
with a memory allocation error. The source code has been modified to fix
problems with memory allocation. Now, using the "convert" command with the
"-color" option works correctly. (BZ#616538)

* Previously, ImageMagick could become unresponsive when using the
"display" command on damaged GIF files. The source code has been revised to
prevent the issue. ImageMagick now produces an error message in the
described scenario. A file selector is now opened so the user can choose
another image to display. (BZ#693989)

* Prior to this update, the "convert" command did not handle rotated PDF
files correctly. As a consequence, the output was rendered as a portrait
with the content being cropped. With this update, the PDF render geometry
is modified, and the output produced by the "convert" command is properly
rendered as a landscape. (BZ#694922)

All users of ImageMagick are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to correct these issues. All running
instances of ImageMagick must be restarted for this update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

580535 - Using "-page" option in ImageMagick's "convert" set bogus page size in PostScript
652860 - CVE-2010-4167 ImageMagick: configuration files read from $CWD may allow arbitrary code execution
