High Nessus Plugin ID 28082

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9

Synopsis

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

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities were found in ImageMagick's handling of DCM and WXD image files. By tricking a user into processing a specially crafted image with an application that uses imagemagick, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.

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.
