<title>ImageMagick: PALM and DCM buffer overflows</title>
ImageMagick improperly handles PALM and DCM images, potentially resulting
in the execution of arbitrary code.

ImageMagick is a software suite to create, edit, and compose bitmap
images, that can also read, write, and convert images in many other
M. Joonas Pihlaja has reported that a boundary error exists within the
ReadDCMImage() function of coders/dcm.c, causing the improper handling
of DCM images. Pihlaja also reported that there are several boundary
errors in the ReadPALMImage() function of coders/palm.c, similarly
causing the improper handling of PALM images.
<impact type="normal">
An attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted DCM or PALM
image with ImageMagick, and possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running ImageMagick.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ImageMagick users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-gfx/imagemagick-;</code>
