Ubuntu 16.04 LTS / 18.04 LTS : ImageMagick vulnerabilities (USN-4192-1)

high Nessus Plugin ID 131072

Synopsis

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

Description

It was discovered that ImageMagick incorrectly handled certain malformed image files. If a user or automated system using ImageMagick were tricked into opening a specially crafted image, an attacker could exploit this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute code with the privileges of the user invoking the program.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
