1 June 2022

ImageMagick could be made to crash if it opened a specially crafted file.



  • imagemagick - Image manipulation programs and library


It was discovered that ImageMagick incorrectly handled memory under
certain circumstances. If a user were tricked into opening a specially
crafted image, an attacker could possibly exploit this issue to cause a
denial of service or other unspecified impact.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 18.04
Ubuntu 16.04

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