Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:320

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2005:320.

ImageMagick(TM) is an image display and manipulation tool for the X Window
System which can read and write multiple image formats.

A format string bug was found in the way ImageMagick handles filenames. An
attacker could execute arbitrary code on a victim's machine if they were
able to trick the victim into opening a file with a specially crafted name.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has
assigned the name CVE-2005-0397 to this issue.

Additionally, a bug was fixed which caused ImageMagick(TM) to occasionally
segfault when writing TIFF images to standard output.

contain a backported patch, and are not vulnerable to these issues.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
