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 is different from CVSS.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Bob Friesenhahn discovered a command injection vulnerability in Graphicsmagick, a program suite for image manipulation. An attacker with control on input image or the input filename can execute arbitrary commands with the privileges of the user running the application.

This update removes the possibility of using pipe (|) in filenames to interact with graphicsmagick.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.3.16-1.1+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your graphicsmagick packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
