Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat

ImageMagick is an image display and manipulation tool for the X Window
Andrei Nigmatulin discovered a heap based buffer overflow flaw in the
ImageMagick image handler. A possible hacker could create a carefully crafted
Photoshop Document (PSD) image in such a way that it would cause
ImageMagick to execute arbitrary code when processing the image. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2005-0005 to this issue.
Users of ImageMagick should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch, and are not vulnerable to this issue.
