USN-1028-1: ImageMagick vulnerability

07 December 2010



  • imagemagick -


It was discovered that ImageMagick would search for configuration files in
the current directory. If a user were tricked into opening or processing an
image in an arbitrary directory, a local attacker could execute arbitrary
code with the user's privileges.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 9.10
Ubuntu 8.04
Ubuntu 10.10
Ubuntu 10.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
