The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.


This update for ImageMagick fixes the following issues :

CVE-2018-16644: A regression in the security fix for the pict coder was fixed (bsc#1107609)

CVE-2017-11532: When ImageMagick processed a crafted file in convert, it could lead to a Memory Leak in the WriteMPCImage() function in coders/mpc.c. (bsc#1050129)

CVE-2017-11639: A regression in the security fix in the cip coder was fixed (bsc#1050635)
