Debian DLA-1245-1 : graphicsmagick security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 106055

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

A vulnerability has been discovered in GraphicsMagick, a collection of image processing tools, which may result in a denial of service.

CVE-2018-5685: An infinite loop and application hang has been discovered in the ReadBMPImage function (coders/bmp.c). Remote attackers could leverage this vulnerability to cause a denial of service via an image file with a crafted bit-field mask value.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.3.16-1.1+deb7u17.

We recommend that you upgrade your graphicsmagick 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.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
