Details

Multiple vulnerabilities were found in the image decoders of ImageMagick.
If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a malicious
DCM, DIB, XBM, XCF, or XWD image, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary
code with user privileges.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 7.04
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 6.06

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
