The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Updated imagemagick packages fix security vulnerability :

The Magick_png_malloc function in coders/png.c in ImageMagick 6.7.8-6
and earlier does not use the proper variable type for the allocation
size, which might allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(crash) via a crafted PNG file that triggers incorrect memory
allocation (CVE-2012-3437).

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
