Description

Updated ImageMagick packages that fix two 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. A shell command injection flaw was found in ImageMagick's "display" command. It is possible to execute arbitrary commands by tricking a user into running "display" on a file with a specially crafted name. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) assigned the name CVE-2005-4601 to this issue. A format string flaw was discovered in the way ImageMagick handles filenames. It may be possible to execute arbitrary commands by tricking a user into running a carefully crafted ImageMagick command. (CVE-2006-0082) Users of ImageMagick should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.
