Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities were found in the image decoders of
ImageMagick. If a user or automated system were tricked into
processing a malicious DCM, DIB, XBM, XCF, or XWD image, a remote
attacker could execute arbitrary code with user 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.
