An integer overflow in ImageMagick might allow remote attackers to cause the remote execution of arbitrary code.
|Package||media-gfx/imagemagick on all architectures|

|Unaffected versions||>= 188.8.131.52|
ImageMagick is a collection of tools and libraries for manipulating various image formats.
Tielei Wang has discovered that the XMakeImage() function in magick/xwindow.c is prone to an integer overflow, possibly leading to a buffer overflow.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted image, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application, or a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ImageMagick users should upgrade to an unaffected version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/imagemagick-184.108.40.206"
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are available since June 4, 2009. It is likely that your system is already no longer affected by this issue.
