Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in graphicsmagick, a collection of image processing tool, which can lead to the execution of arbitrary code, exposure of sensitive information or cause DoS. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
Multiple integer overflows in XInitImage function in xwd.c for GraphicsMagick, allow user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or obtain sensitive information via crafted images with large or negative values that trigger a buffer overflow. It only affects the oldstable distribution (etch).
Multiple integer overflows allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted DCM image, or the colors or comments field in a crafted XWD image. It only affects the oldstable distribution (etch)…
