Package : imagemagick
Vulnerability : missing shell meta sanitising
Problem type : local (remote)
CVE ID : CVE-2005-4601
BugTraq ID : 16093
Debian Bug : 345238
Florian Weimer discovered that delegate code in ImageMagick is
vulnerable to shell command injection using specially crafted file
names. This allows attackers to encode commands inside of graphic
commands. With some user interaction, this is exploitable through
Gnus and Thunderbird. This update filters out the '$' character as
well, which was forgotton in the former update.
