critical Nessus Plugin ID 94297
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

Several vulnerabilities have been found in the graphicsmagick package that may lead to denial of service through failed assertions, CPU or memory usage. Some vulnerabilities may also lead to code execution but no exploit is currently known.

CVE-2016-7448

Utah RLE: Reject truncated/absurd files which caused huge memory allocations and/or consumed huge CPU

CVE-2016-7996

missing check that the provided colormap is not larger than 256 entries resulting in potential heap overflow

CVE-2016-8683

CVE-2016-8684

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.3.16-1.1+deb7u5.

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.
