Comment 1 Dhananjay Arunesh 2020-02-11 13:13:58 UTC
Created ImageMagick tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: epel-8 [bug 1801669]
Affects: fedora-all [bug 1801668]

Comment 2 Michael Cronenworth 2020-02-11 13:32:25 UTC
Do you have any evidence that this CVE affects the ImageMagick packages in Fedora or EPEL?

- The CVE reports this against version 7.x and not 6.x.
- Fedora and EPEL only ship version 6.x.
- The 7.x fix was made in April 2019.
- The 6.x version in Fedora and EPEL are from source dated January 2020.

Please update and close any bugs as I do not believe they affect Fedora or EPEL. If this is the case please update your scripts to not spam me again.

As per our manifest file we ship ImageMagick 6.x in fedora and epel, the reported issue was in 7.x. Just to double check whether 6.x is affected or not marked fedora and epel as affected
