Synopsis
========

ImageMagick and GraphicsMagick utilities can be abused to perform a
Denial of Service attack.

Background
==========

Both ImageMagick and GraphicsMagick are collection of tools to read,
write and manipulate images in many formats.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package                   /  Vulnerable  /             Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-gfx/imagemagick         < 6.2.2.3                >= 6.2.2.3
  2  media-gfx/graphicsmagick     < 1.1.6-r1               >= 1.1.6-r1
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     2 affected packages on all of their supported architectures.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

Description
===========

Tavis Ormandy of the Gentoo Linux Security Audit Team discovered a
Denial of Service vulnerability in the XWD decoder of ImageMagick and
GraphicsMagick when setting a color mask to zero.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could submit a specially crafted image to a user or
an automated system making use of an affected utility, resulting in a
Denial of Service by consumption of CPU time.

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-6.2.2.3"

All GraphicsMagick users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/graphicsmagick-1.1.6-r1"

Availability
============

This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at
