Description Stefan Cornelius 2012-03-29 10:05:53 UTC
A denial of service flaw was found in the way ImageMagick, an image display and manipulation tool for the X Window System, decoded certain JPEG images. A remote attacker could provide a JPEG image with specially-crafted values / sequences of RST0 up to RST7 restart markers (used to indicate the input stream to be corrupted), which once processed by some ImageMagick tool would lead that tool to consume excessive amount of CPU time (denial of service).
