Fixed In Version: ImaeMagick 7.1.0-52, ImageMagick 6.9.12-67
Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
A vulnerability was found in ImageMagick that is triggered when the software parses a PNG image containing a single dash (-) in the filename. To remotely exploit this bug, an attacker can upload a malicious PNG with a text chunk that adds a single dash in the name to any site using ImageMagick. The site would then parse the image, and ImageMagick would interpret the text string as the filename, loading the content as a raw profile. If this text string contains a single dash, the program would then try to read content from the standard input, potentially leaving the conversion process waiting infinitely, causing a denial of service.

Description Sandipan Roy 2023-02-07 05:03:55 UTC
ImageMagick 7.1.0-49 is vulnerable to Denial of Service. When it parses a PNG image (e.g., for resize), the convert process could be left waiting for stdin input.
