SecurityFocus reports about ImageMagick:

ImageMagick is prone to a remote heap-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because the application fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied input before copying it to an insufficiently sized memory buffer.

Exploiting this issue allows attackers to execute arbitrary machine code in the context of applications that use the ImageMagick library.
