USN-4988-1: ImageMagick vulnerabilities

15 June 2021

Several security issues were fixed in ImageMagick.



  • 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.
