# ImageMagick Arbitrary Read Files - CVE-2022-44268

This repository contains a proof-of-concept (PoC) code for exploiting the arbitrary file read vulnerability (CVE-2022-44268) in ImageMagick. The PoC demonstrates how an attacker can leverage the vulnerability to read arbitrary files on the system.

## Prerequisites

To run the code, ensure that you have the following dependencies installed:

- Python 3.x
- Pillow (Python Imaging Library)

You can install the necessary dependencies using `pip`:

pip install pillow

## Usage

The PoC code provides three main functionalities: generate, read, and apply.

### Generate

Generate a PoC PNG file with embedded profile information.

python3 generate -l [local_file] -o [output_file]

- `[local_file]`: Path to the local file that we want to extract.
- `[output_file]`: Path to the output PNG file.

### Read

Read and decode the profile type from a PNG file.

python3 read -i [input_file]

- `[input_file]`: Path to the input PNG file.

### Apply

Apply profile information to a PNG file.

python3 apply -i [input_file] -l [local_file]

- `[input_file]`: Path to the input PNG file.
- `[local_file]`: Path to the local file that we want to extract.
