Debian DLA-502-1 : graphicsmagick security update
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 91446
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionBob 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.
