MDKSA-2005:065: ImageMagick Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the ImageMagick package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:065 (ImageMagick).
A format string vulnerability was discovered in ImageMagick, in the way it
handles filenames. A possible hacker could execute arbitrary code on a victim's
machine provided they could trick them into opening a file with a special name
As well, Andrei Nigmatulin discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in
ImageMagick's image handler. A possible hacker could create a special PhotoShop
Document (PSD) image file in such a way that it would cause ImageMagick to
execute arbitray code when processing the image (CVE-2005-0005).
Other vulnerabilities were discovered in ImageMagick versions prior to 6.0:
A bug in the way that ImageMagick handles TIFF tags was discovered. It was
possible that a TIFF image with an invalid tag could cause ImageMagick to crash
A bug in ImageMagick's TIFF decoder was discovered where a specially- crafted
TIFF image could cause ImageMagick to crash (CVE-2005-0760).
A bug in ImageMagick's PSD parsing was discovered where a specially- crafted
PSD file could cause ImageMagick to crash (CVE-2005-0761).
Finally, a heap overflow bug was discovered in ImageMagick's SGI parser. If an
attacker could trick a user into opening a specially- crafted SGI image file,
ImageMagick would execute arbitrary code (CVE-2005-0762).
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
