Description Bryan Østergaard (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-04-27 02:42:58 UTC
Graphicsmagick is vulnerable to the same heap overflow as Imagemagick - see bug 90423.

See bug 90423, this may be considered a crash bug rather than a vulnerability.

Taviso confirmed this is a DoS issue. Please provide an updated ebuild.
Comment 4 Bryan Østergaard (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-03 15:45:43 UTC
Bumped to 1.1.6 + stabled x86.
Comment 5 Michael Hanselmann (hansmi) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-04 12:03:36 UTC
Stable on ppc.
Comment 6 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-05 22:46:41 UTC
DoS issue not fixed. We'll wait on the main imagemagick fix.
Comment 7 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-13 02:35:16 UTC
Is the xwd DoS thing present in graphicsmagick too ? Or just the unexploitable PNM overflow thing ?
Comment 8 Tavis Ormandy (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-15 08:42:40 UTC
yep, it shares the xwd code that causes the DoS.
Comment 9 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-15 08:58:10 UTC
OK, we need to push this upstream then...
Comment 10 Tavis Ormandy (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-16 09:34:57 UTC
upstream contacted as requested.
Comment 11 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-19 07:44:02 UTC
Upstream patched it here :

and mentions Tavis in their Changelog :

Not yet in an official release. kloeri, feel like to bump the current one with
the patch ?
Comment 12 Bryan Østergaard (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-20 12:45:23 UTC
Just committed -1.1.6-r1 with the patch included.
