Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3363-1
July 24, 2017

imagemagick vulnerabilities

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 17.04
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in ImageMagick.

Software Description:
- imagemagick: Image manipulation programs and library


It was discovered that ImageMagick incorrectly handled certain malformed
image files. If a user or automated system using ImageMagick were tricked
into opening a specially crafted image, an attacker could exploit this to
cause a denial of service or possibly execute code with the privileges of
the user invoking the program.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 17.04:
  imagemagick                     8:
  imagemagick-6.q16               8:
  libmagick++-6.q16-7             8:
  libmagickcore-6.q16-3           8:

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  imagemagick                     8:
  imagemagick-6.q16               8:
  libmagick++-6.q16-5v5           8:
  libmagickcore-6.q16-2           8:

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
  imagemagick                     8:
  libmagick++5                    8:
  libmagickcore5                  8:

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
