Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in ImageMagick. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can cause denial of service conditions.

A remote user can create a specially crafted file that, when loaded by the target user or application, will execute arbitrary code or cause denial of service conditions on the target system.

Specially crafted exchangeable image file format (Exif) metadata can trigger code execution [CVE-2012-0247].

Specially crafted Exif metadata can cause ImageMagick to enter an infinite loop [CVE-2012-0248].

Specially crafted Exif tags can trigger an invalid memory access and cause ImageMagick to crash [CVE-2012-0259].

Specially crafted JPEG images can cause ImageMagick to consume excessive memory and CPU resources [CVE-2012-0260].

Specially crafted Exif IFD values in TIFF images can trigger an out-of-bounds buffer read and cause ImageMagick to crash [CVE-2012-1798].

Impact:   A remote user can create a file that, when loaded by the target user or application, will execute arbitrary code on the target system.

A remote user can cause denial of service conditions on the target system.
