CVE Reference(s):

Description


Some vulnerabilities have been reported in ImageMagick, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and potentially compromise a vulnerable system.

1) A boundary error within the "ReadDCMImage()" function in coders/dcm.c can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow when processing specially crafted DCM images.

2) Several boundary errors within the "ReadPALMImage()" function in coders/palm.c can be exploited to cause heap-based buffer overflows when processing specially crafted PALM images.

Successful exploitation may allow the execution of arbitrary code.


Solution:
Do not open untrusted PALM and DCM images.

Provided and/or discovered by:
