ImageMagick Remote EXIF Parsing Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

A remote buffer overflow vulnerability reportedly affects the EXIF parsing functionality of ImageMagick. This issue is due to a failure of the application to carry out sufficient bounds checking prior to copying strings into process buffers.

An attacker may exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code on an affected computer with the privileges of the user that activated the vulnerable application, facilitating unauthorized access or privilege escalation.
