Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities were found in ImageMagick's handling of DCM
and WXD image files. By tricking a user into processing a specially
crafted image with an application that uses imagemagick, an attacker
could execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
