CentOS Update for ImageMagick CESA-2012:0544 centos6

Published: 2012-07-30 10:40:56
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'ImageMagick' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
ImageMagick on CentOS 6

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Technical Details:
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) It was found that ImageMagick utilities tried to load ImageMagick configuration files from the current working directory. If a user ran an ImageMagick utility in an attacker-controlled directory containing a specially-crafted ImageMagick configuration file, it could cause the utility to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-4167) An integer overflow flaw was found in the way ImageMagick processed certain Exif tags with a large components count. An attacker could create a specially-crafted image file that, when opened by a victim, could cause ImageMagick to access invalid memory and crash. (CVE-2012-0259) 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) An out-of-bounds buffer read flaw was found in the way ImageMagick processed certain TIFF image files. A remote attacker could provide a TIFF image with a specially-crafted Exif IFD value (the set of tags for recording Exif-specific attribute information), which once opened by ImageMagick, would cause it to crash. (CVE-2012-1798) Red Hat would like to thank CERT-FI for reporting CVE-2012-0259, CVE-2012-0260, and CVE-2012-1798. CERT-FI acknowledges Aleksis Kauppinen, Joonas Kuorilehto, Tuomas Parttimaa and Lasse Ylivainio of Codenomicon's CROSS project as the original reporters. Users of ImageMagick are advised to upgrade to these updated Linux Distribution Packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. All running instances of ImageMagick must be restarted for this update to take effect.

Detection Type:

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
