Debian DLA-1227-1 : imagemagick security update

This script is Copyright (C) 2018 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description :

Several security vulnerabilities were discovered in ImageMagick, an
image manipulation program, that allow remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (CPU exhaustion via an infinite loop), heap-based
buffer overreads or possibly other unspecified impact via a crafted
image file.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version
8:6.7.7.10-5+deb7u19.

We recommend that you upgrade your imagemagick packages.

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