MDKSA-2005:107: 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-2005:107 (ImageMagick).
A heap-based buffer overflow was found in the way that ImageMagick parses PNM
files. If a possible hacker can trick a victim into opening a specially crafted PNM
file, the attacker could execute arbitrary code on the victim's machine
As well, a Denial of Service vulnerability was found in the way that
ImageMagick parses XWD files. If a user or program executed ImageMagick to
process a malicious XWD file, ImageMagick will enter info an infinite loop
causing a DoS (CVE-2005-1739).
The updated packages have been patched to fix these issues.
