ID CVE-2006-0082
Summary Format string vulnerability in the SetImageInfo function in image.c for ImageMagick 6.2.3 and other versions, and GraphicsMagick, allows user-assisted attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a numeric format string specifier such as %d in the file name, a variant of CVE-2005-0397, and as demonstrated using the convert program.

  • Format String Injection
    An attacker includes formatting characters in a string input field on the target application. Most applications assume that users will provide static text and may respond unpredictably to the presence of formatting character. For example, in certain functions of the C programming languages such as printf, the formatting character %s will print the contents of a memory location expecting this location to identify a string and the formatting character %n prints the number of DWORD written in the memory. An attacker can use this to read or write to memory locations or files, or simply to manipulate the value of the resulting text in unexpected ways. Reading or writing memory may result in program crashes and writing memory could result in the execution of arbitrary code if the attacker can write to the program stack.
  • String Format Overflow in syslog()
    This attack targets the format string vulnerabilities in the syslog() function. An attacker would typically inject malicious input in the format string parameter of the syslog function. This is a common problem, and many public vulnerabilities and associated exploits have been posted.
