TOP VULNERABILITY THIS WEEK: Major Vulnerability in ImageMagick Library

Potentially Leading to Remote Code Execution Disclosed


NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES SELECTED BY THE TALOS SECURITY INTELLIGENCE AND RESEARCH GROUP

Title: Major Vulnerability in ImageMagick Library Potentially Leading
to Remote Code Execution Disclosed
Description: A major vulnerability in ImageMagick that could lead to
remote code execution has been disclosed to the public is under active
exploitation in the wild. The flaw (CVE-2016-3714) manifests due to
improperly handling images and can be exploited if the library is used
to process user submitted images. Researchers have indicated that
several image processing plugins utilize the ImageMagick library such
as PHP, Ruby, and node.js. Mitigations to reduce the risk of compromise
are available if patching is not an immediate viable option.
