Debian DLA-1888-1 : imagemagick security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 127924
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in imagemagick, an image processing toolkit.


NULL pointer dereference in ReadPANGOImage and ReadVIDImage (coders/pango.c and coders/vid.c). This vulnerability might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause denial of service via crafted image data.


Multiple use of uninitialized values in ReadCUTImage, UnpackWPG2Raster and UnpackWPGRaster (coders/wpg.c and coders/cut.c). These vulnerabilities might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause denial of service or unauthorized disclosure or modification of information via crafted image data.

CVE-2019-13295, CVE-2019-13297

Multiple heap buffer over-reads in AdaptiveThresholdImage (magick/threshold.c). These vulnerabilities might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause denial of service or unauthorized disclosure or modification of information via crafted image data.

CVE-2019-13304, CVE-2019-13305, CVE-2019-13306

Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in WritePNMImage (coders/pnm.c), leading to stack buffer over write up to ten bytes. Remote attackers might leverage these flaws to potentially perform code execution or denial of service.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 8:

We recommend that you upgrade your imagemagick 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.


Upgrade the affected packages.
