Debian DSA-646-1 : imagemagick - buffer overflow

high Nessus Plugin ID 16213
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-related update.


Andrei Nigmatulin discovered a buffer overflow in the PSD image-decoding module of ImageMagick, a commonly used image manipulation library. Remote exploitation with a carefully crafted image could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.


Upgrade the imagemagick packages.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version
