Description

Several buffer overflows were reported in various memory allocation calls. An attacker could create a carefully crafted image file in such a way that it could cause ImageMagick to execute arbitrary code when processing the image. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0990 to these issues.

Whilst researching the fixes to these overflows, additional buffer overflows were discovered in calls to gdMalloc. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0941 to these issues.

Users of gd should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported security patch, and are not vulnerable to these issues.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
