Updated ImageMagick packages that fix a BMP loader vulnerability are now available.
ImageMagick(TM) is an image display and manipulation tool for the X Window System. A heap overflow flaw has been discovered in the ImageMagick image handler. An attacker could create a carefully crafted BMP file in such a way that it could cause ImageMagick to execute arbitrary code when processing the image. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0827 to this issue. Users of ImageMagick should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported patch, and is not vulnerable to this issue.
