GraphicsMagick is vulnerable to a heap overflow when decoding Photoshop Document (PSD) files, which could lead to arbitrary code execution.
|Package||media-gfx/graphicsmagick on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.1.5|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.1.5|
GraphicsMagick is a collection of tools to read, write and manipulate images in many formats. GraphicsMagick is originally derived from ImageMagick 5.5.2.
Andrei Nigmatulin discovered that handling a Photoshop Document (PSD) file with more than 24 layers in ImageMagick could trigger a heap overflow (GLSA 200501-26). GraphicsMagick is based on the same code and therefore suffers from the same flaw.
An attacker could potentially design a malicious PSD image file to cause arbitrary code execution with the permissions of the user running GraphicsMagick.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GraphicsMagick users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/graphicsmagick-1.1.5"
