Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in ImageMagick allows attackers to crash the
application and potentially execute arbitrary code.

Background
==========

ImageMagick is an application suite to manipulate and convert images.
It is often used as a utility backend by web applications like forums,
content management systems or picture galleries.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 media-gfx/imagemagick < 6.2.5.5 >= 6.2.5.5

Description
===========

The SetImageInfo function was found vulnerable to a format string
mishandling. Daniel Kobras discovered that the handling of "%"-escaped
sequences in filenames passed to the function is inadequate. This is a
new vulnerability that is not addressed by GLSA 200503-11.

Impact
======

By feeding specially crafted file names to ImageMagick, an attacker can
crash the program and possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running ImageMagick.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All ImageMagick users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=media-gfx/imagemagick-6.2.5.5"
