Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

It was discovered that GraphicsMagick incorrectly handled certain image files. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial of service or other unspecified impact.

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 graphicsmagick, libgraphicsmagick++-q16-12 and / or libgraphicsmagick-q16-3 packages.
