Synopsis
=======
Vulnerabilities found in ImageMagick might allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code.

Background
=========
ImageMagick is a collection of tools and libraries for manipulating
various image formats.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-gfx/imagemagick       < 6.7.5.3                 >= 6.7.5.3

Description
==========
Two vulnerabilities have been found in ImageMagick:

* Incorrect offset and count values in the ResolutionUnit tag in EXIF
  IFD could cause memory corruption (CVE-2012-0247).
* IOP tag offsets pointing to the beginning of an IFD could cause an
  infinite loop of ImageMagick parsing the IFD structure
  (CVE-2012-0248).

Impact
=====
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
image, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of
Service condition.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All ImageMagick users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/imagemagick-6.7.5.3"
