Synopsis
========

ImageMagick, imlib and imlib2 contain exploitable buffer overflow
vulnerabilities in the BMP image processing code.

Background
==========

ImageMagick is a suite of image manipulation utilities and libraries
used for a wide variety of image formats. imlib is a general image
loading and rendering library.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 media-gfx/imagemagick < 6.0.7.1 >= 6.0.7.1
2 media-libs/imlib < 1.9.14-r2 >= 1.9.14-r2
3 media-libs/imlib2 < 1.1.2 >= 1.1.2
-------------------------------------------------------------------
3 affected packages on all of their supported architectures.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Due to improper bounds checking, ImageMagick and imlib are vulnerable
to a buffer overflow when decoding runlength-encoded bitmaps. This bug
can be exploited using a specially-crafted BMP image and could
potentially allow remote code execution when this image is decoded by
the user.

Impact
======

A specially-crafted runlength-encoded BMP could lead ImageMagick and
imlib to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All ImageMagick users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge sync

# emerge -pv ">=media-gfx/imagemagick-6.0.7.1"
# emerge ">=media-gfx/imagemagick-6.0.7.1"

All imlib users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge sync

# emerge -pv ">=media-libs/imlib-1.9.14-r2"
# emerge ">=media-libs/imlib-1.9.14-r2"

All imlib2 users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge sync

# emerge -pv ">=media-libs/imlib2-1.1.2"
# emerge ">=media-libs/imlib2-1.1.2"
