Debian DSA-3799-1 : imagemagick - security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 97475
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-related update.

Description

This update fixes several vulnerabilities in imagemagick: Various memory handling problems and cases of missing or incomplete input sanitising may result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code if malformed TIFF, WPG, IPL, MPC or PSB files are processed.

Solution

Upgrade the imagemagick packages.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 8:6.8.9.9-5+deb8u7.
