Overflow.pl Security Advisory #7

ImageMagick ReadSGIImage() Heap Overflow

Vendor: ImageMagick (http://www.imagemagick.org)
Affected version: 6.x up to and including 6.2.8
Vendor status: Fixed version released (6.2.9)

1. Background

ImageMagick is a free software suite to create, edit, and compose bitmap images.
It can read, convert and write images in a large variety of formats.


2. Description

Remote exploitation of a heap overflow vulnerability could allow execution of
arbitrary code or couse denial of service.

A heap overflow exists in ReadSGIImage() function, that is used to
decode a SGI image file. The vulnerable code is:


static Image *ReadSGIImage(const ImageInfo *image_info,ExceptionInfo *exception)
iris_info.bytes_per_pixel=(unsigned char) ReadBlobByte(image);
bytes_per_pixel=(size_t) iris_info.bytes_per_pixel;
number_pixels=(MagickSizeType) iris_info.columns*iris_info.rows;
iris_pixels=(unsigned char *)AcquireMagickMemory

We can manipalute iris_info.rows, iris_info.columns and bytes_per_pixel
value. Allocation of memory to "iris_pixels" is based on this values.
When rows*cols*bytes_per_pixe*4 overflow integer variable, we can alloc not
enough memory for next operations, and cause heap overflow.

3. PoC

Example crafted SGI file: http://overflow.pl/poc/imheap.sgi

[pucik@overflow ImageMagick-6.2.8]$ display imheap.sgi
*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid next size (fast): 0x08055dd0 ***
Abort (core dumped)
[pucik@overflow ImageMagick-6.2.8]$
