ImageMagick is a software suite to create, edit, and compose bitmap
images, that can also read, write, and convert images in many other
formats.

<p>
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">
<p>
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.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All ImageMagick users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-gfx/imagemagick-6.3.0.5&quot;</code>
