Debian DLA-242-1 : imagemagick security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 84130

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

This update fixes a large number of potential security problems due to insufficient data validation when parsing different input formats.
Most of those potential security problems do not have a CVE number assigned.

While the security implications of all of these problems are not all fully known, it is highly recommended to update.

The update fixes the following identified vulnerabilities :

CVE-2012-3437

Incorrect validation of PNG buffer size, leading to DoS using specially crafted PNG files.

CVE-2014-8354

Out of bounds memory access in resize

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
