Synopsis: Moderate: ImageMagick security and bug fix update Issue Date: 2012-05-07 CVE Numbers: CVE-2012-0247 CVE-2012-0260 ImageMagick is an image display and manipulation tool for the X Window System that can read and write multiple image formats. A flaw was found in the way ImageMagick processed images with malformed Exchangeable image file format (Exif) metadata. An attacker could create a specially-crafted image file that, when opened by a victim, would cause ImageMagick to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-0247) A denial of service flaw was found in the way ImageMagick processed images with malformed Exif metadata. An attacker could create a specially-crafted image file that, when opened by a victim, could cause ImageMagick to enter an infinite loop. (CVE-2012-0248) A denial of service flaw was found in the way ImageMagick decoded certain JPEG images. A remote attacker could provide a JPEG image with specially-crafted sequences of RST0 up to RST7 restart markers (used to indicate the input stream to be corrupted), which once processed by ImageMagick, would cause it to consume excessive amounts of memory and CPU time. (CVE-2012-0260) This update also fixes the following bug: * The fix for a bug provided by a previous ImageMagick update, introduced a regression. Attempting to use the"convert" utility to convert a PostScript document could fail with a "/undefinedfilename" error. With this update, conversion works as expected. Users of ImageMagick are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. All running instances of ImageMagick must be restarted for this update to take effect.
