Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:0653
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2010:0653.

ImageMagick is an image display and manipulation tool for the X Window
System that can read and write multiple image formats.

An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was
found in the ImageMagick routine responsible for creating X11 images. An
attacker could create a specially-crafted image file that, when opened by a
victim, would cause ImageMagick to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2009-1882)

Users of ImageMagick are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. All running
instances of ImageMagick must be restarted for this update to take effect.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
