Description

Updated ImageMagick packages that fix several security issues are now available. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

ImageMagick(TM) is an image display and manipulation tool for the X Window System that can read and write multiple image formats. Tavis Ormandy discovered several integer and buffer overflow flaws in the way ImageMagick decodes XCF, SGI, and Sun bitmap graphic files. An attacker could execute arbitrary code on a victim's machine if they were able to trick the victim into opening a specially crafted image file. (CVE-2006-3743, CVE-2006-3744, CVE-2006-4144) Users of ImageMagick should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.
