- CVE-2016-3714: Insufficient shell characters filtering leads to (potentially remote) code execution

- CVE-2016-3715: Possible file deletion by using ImageMagick's 'ephemeral' pseudo protocol which deletes files after reading.

- CVE-2016-3716: Possible file moving by using ImageMagick's 'msl' pseudo protocol with any extension in any folder.

- CVE-2016-3717: Possible local file read by using ImageMagick's 'label' pseudo protocol to get content of the files from the server.

- CVE-2016-3718: Possible Server Side Request Forgery (SSRF) to make HTTP GET or FTP request.

Bugs fixed :
