Debian DLA-547-2 : graphicsmagick regression update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 92665
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe fix for CVE-2016-5240 was improperly applied which resulted in GraphicsMagick crashing instead of entering an infinite loop with the given proof of concept.
Furthermore, the original announcement mistakently used the identifier 'DLA 574-1' instead of the correct one, 'DLA 547-1'.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.3.16-1.1+deb7u6.
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.
SolutionUpgrade the affected packages.
