Published: 2016-05-10 03:19:32
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Check the version of ImageMagick

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
ImageMagick is an image display and manipulation tool for the X Window System that can read and write multiple image formats. Security Fix(es): * It was discovered that ImageMagick did not properly sanitize certain input before passing it to the delegate functionality. A remote attacker could create a specially crafted image that, when processed by an application using ImageMagick or an unsuspecting user using the ImageMagick utilities, would lead to arbitrary execution of shell commands with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2016-3714) * It was discovered that certain ImageMagick coders and pseudo-protocols did not properly prevent security sensitive operations when processing specially crafted images. A remote attacker could create a specially crafted image that, when processed by an application using ImageMagick or an unsuspecting user using the ImageMagick utilities, would allow the attacker to delete, move, or disclose the contents of arbitrary files. (CVE-2016-3715, CVE-2016-3716, CVE-2016-3717) * A server-side request forgery flaw was discovered in the way ImageMagick processed certain images. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to mislead an application using ImageMagick or an unsuspecting user using the ImageMagick utilities into, for example, performing HTTP(S) requests or opening FTP sessions via specially crafted images. (CVE-2016-3718) Note: This update contains an updated /etc/ImageMagick/policy.xml file that disables the EPHEMERAL, HTTPS, HTTP, URL, FTP, MVG, MSL, TEXT, and LABEL coders. If you experience any problems after the update, it may be necessary to manually adjust the policy.xml file to match your requirements. Please take additional precautions to ensure that your applications using the ImageMagick library do not process malicious or untrusted files before doing so.

Affected Versions:
ImageMagick on CentOS 6

Please Install the Updated Packages.

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".
