Two security vulnerabilities related to EXIF processing were discovered in ImageMagick, a suite of programs to manipulate images:

CVE-2012-0247 When parsing a maliciously crafted image with incorrect offset and count in the ResolutionUnit tag in EXIF IFD0, ImageMagick writes two bytes to an invalid address.
