- More information:
Several issues have been discovered in ImageMagick, a popular set of programs and libraries for image manipulation. These issues include several problems in memory handling that can result in a denial of service attack or in execution of arbitrary code by an attacker with control on the image input.
For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 8:188.8.131.52-5+deb8u6.
For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 8:184.108.40.206+dfsg-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your imagemagick packages.
