Ubuntu 12.04 LTS / 14.04 LTS / 16.04 LTS / 16.10 : imagemagick vulnerabilities (USN-3142-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2016-2017 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

It was discovered that ImageMagick incorrectly handled certain
malformed image files. If a user or automated system using ImageMagick
were tricked into opening a specially crafted image, an attacker could
exploit this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute code
with the privileges of the user invoking the program.

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.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
