Debian DLA-1968-1 : imagemagick security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 130133


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


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


Uncontrolled resource consumption caused by insufficiently sanitized image size in ReadCINImage (coders/cin.c). This vulnerability might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause denial of service via a crafted Cineon image.


Divide-by-zero vulnerability in MeanShiftImage (magick/feature.c).
This vulnerability might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause denial of service via crafted image data.


Out-of-bounds read in ReadXWDImage (coders/xwd.c). This vulnerability might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause denial of service via a crafted XWD (X Window System window dumping file) image file.


Bound checking issue in ReadMATImage (coders/mat.c), potentially leading to use-after-free. This vulnerability might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause denial of service or any other unspecified impact via a crafted MAT image file.

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.
