Synopsis: Updated ImageMagick packages fix security vulnerabilities
Advisory ID: RHSA-2004:494-01
Issue date: 2004-10-20
Updated on: 2004-10-20
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names: CAN-2003-0455 CAN-2004-0827
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated ImageMagick packages that fix various security vulnerabilities are now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1 - i386, ia64
Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation 2.1 - ia64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 2.1 - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 2.1 - i386

3. Problem description:

ImageMagick(TM) is an image display and manipulation tool for the X Window System.

A heap overflow flaw was discovered in the ImageMagick image handler. An attacker could create a carefully crafted BMP file 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 CAN-2004-0827 to this issue.

A temporary file handling bug has been found in ImageMagick's libmagick library. A local user could overwrite or create files as a different user if a program was linked with the vulnerable library. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2003-0455 to this issue.

Users of ImageMagick should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch, and is not vulnerable to this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command:
