Details

Vladimir Nadvornik discovered that the fix for CVE-2006-5456, released
in USN-372-1, did not correctly solve the original flaw in PALM image
handling. By tricking a user into processing a specially crafted image
with an application that uses imagemagick, an 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 6.10
  • libmagick9 - 7:6.2.4.5.dfsg1-0.10ubuntu0.2
Ubuntu 6.06
  • libmagick9 - 6:6.2.4.5-0.6ubuntu0.5
Ubuntu 5.10
  • libmagick6 - 6:6.2.3.4-1ubuntu1.6

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
