Debian DLA-517-1 : imagemagick security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 91688
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

The code did not check the integer didn't overflow before trying to resize a buffer. A specially crafted file could result in using memory past the end of the allocated buffer.

This security CVEs for this issue (CVE-2016-4563) along with CVE-2016-4562 and CVE-2016-4564 were based on a security advisory that will not be made public. This security fix was generated based only on the surface-level code-change information that is public in GitHub.
For more information on this, see:
http://seclists.org/oss-sec/2016/q2/476

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 8:6.7.7.10-5+deb7u7.

We recommend that you upgrade your imagemagick 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.
