Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-1028-1 (imagemagick)
The remote host is missing an update to imagemagick
announced via advisory USN-1028-1.

Details follow:

It was discovered that ImageMagick would search for configuration files in
the current directory. If a user were tricked into opening or processing an
image in an arbitrary directory, a local attacker could execute arbitrary
code with the user's privileges.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
imagemagick 7:

Ubuntu 9.10:
imagemagick 7:

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
imagemagick 7:
