- CVE-2016-10065: Unchecked calculations when reading VIFF files could have lead to out of bound reads (bsc#1017322)

- CVE-2016-10068: Prevent NULL pointer access when using the MSL interpreter (bsc#1017324)

- CVE-2016-10070: Prevent allocating the wrong amount of memory when reading mat files (bsc#1017326)

- CVE-2016-10146: Captions and labels were handled incorrectly, causing a memory leak that could have lead to DoS (bsc#1020443)

- CVE-2017-5506: Missing offset check leading to a double-free (bsc#1020436).

- CVE-2017-5507: Fixed a memory leak when reading MPC files allowing for DoS (bsc#1020439).

- CVE-2017-5508: Increase the amount of memory allocated for TIFF pixels to prevent a heap buffer-overflow (bsc#1020441).

- CVE-2017-5511: A missing cast when reading PSD files could have caused memory corruption by a heap overflow (bsc#1020448) This update removes the fix for CVE-2016-9773. ImageMagick-6 was not affected by CVE-2016-9773 and it caused a regression (at least in GraphicsMagick) (bsc#1017421).
