Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

This update fixes several vulnerabilities in imagemagick: Various memory handling problems and cases of missing or incomplete input sanitising may result in denial of service, memory disclosure or the execution of arbitrary code if malformed image files are processed.

Solution

Upgrade the imagemagick packages.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 8:6.8.9.9-5+deb8u11.
