All supported architectures
An integer overflow in ImageMagick might allow remote attackers to cause
the remote execution of arbitrary code.
ImageMagick is a collection of tools and libraries for manipulating
various image formats.
Tielei Wang has discovered that the XMakeImage() function in
magick/xwindow.c is prone to an integer overflow, possibly leading to a

image, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running the application, or a Denial of
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ImageMagick users should upgrade to an unaffected version:
Code Listing 3.1: Resolution
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/imagemagick-126.96.36.199"
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since June 4, 2009. It is likely that your system is already
no longer affected by this issue.
