    Description
    ===========
    
    A flaw in ImageMagick's handling of password protected PDFs was
    discovered.
    
    Impact
    ======
    
    A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PDF
    using ImageMagick possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code

    Workaround
    ==========
    
    Do not open untrusted PDFs.
    
    Resolution
    ==========
    
    All ImageMagick 7 users should upgrade to the latest version:
    
      # emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=media-gfx/imagemagick-7.0.10.41-r1"
