ImageMagick Has Security Issues

The Register is reporting some pretty bad ImageMagick security issues. “Whenever you upload a profile photo, a gallery of snaps, or a silly meme to a website, there’s an extremely high chance that the site is using ImageMagick, an open-source collection of image processing tools, to resize, crop and tweak the pictures. By feeding booby-trapped data – such as a poisoned selfie – to web services using ImageMagick, it is possible to execute malicious code on the website’s server. From there hackers can start infiltrating the system to steal secrets, snoop on people’s accounts, and so on.”
