    Normally imagemagick is released by your OS vendor, as we don't know what OS you are running we can't tell you if you are up 2 date. There has been a recent exploit, and as far as i know redhat are going to be releasing an update shortly ( from reading redhats bugzilla ) for this. Keep in mind though, redhat preffer to use older tested tried and true software rather than update the code each time. They tend to patch the holes only, except for major releases, where they'll go through and update what they feel needs to be updated.

    That said, i don't think you will be seeing imagemagick 6 in rhel at least not for a while ( perhaps U4 of rhel3, or maybe not till rhel4 comes out next year ). There are rpms and source on the IM web site however, its easy enough to update it yourself, just make sure to remove the rpm before hand so that any future updates don't overright your manual changes.

    What is the proper way to remove the RPM by hand if an older version was installed via WHM?

    Thanks ;)

    rpm -qa | grep -i image
    rpm -e rpm-u-want-to-remove

    Find and install the dependancies for your OS here: http://www.imagemagick.net/download/linux/

    Thanks for the tip Haze.

    Can someone give me their opinion on an rpm based install vs. just installing it from source? Any pros/cons on either method would be appreciated.

    i did the same and indeed it worked like a charm, and from there i installed MagickWand without a itch.

    Thanks for providing the link.
