More information:

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, memory disclosure, or the execution of arbitrary code if malformed PCX, DCM, JPEG, PSD, HDR, MIFF, PDB, VICAR, SGI, SVG, AAI, MNG, EXR, MAT, SFW, JNG, PCD, XWD, PICT, BMP, MTV, SUN, EPT, ICON, DDS, or ART files are processed.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your imagemagick packages.
