Description Tim Sammut (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-11-15 05:11:29 UTC
From the Debian bug at


ImageMagick reads several configuration files[0] from the current 
working directory. Unfortunately, this allows local attackers to execute 
arbitrary code if ImageMagick is run from an untrusted directory.

Steps to reproduce this bug:

1. As an attacker, put the attached files in /tmp.
2. As a victim, in /tmp run:

$ convert /path/to/foo.png /path/to/bar.png
All your base are belong to us.
convert: missing an image filename `/path/to/bar.png'.


Looks to be fixed in 6.6.5-5 upstream.

amd64 done
Comment 7 Thomas Kahle (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-11-18 11:24:28 UTC
x86 done.  The tests are weird.  Why do they only run on the second merge?

src_test() {
    if has_version ~${CATEGORY}/${P}; then
        emake -j1 check || die
        ewarn "Skipping tests because installed version doesn't match."
Comment 8 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-11-19 15:47:39 UTC
