GraphicsMagick/MuPDF Updates for Debian
Posted on: 11/11/2017 07:12 AM

The following updates has been released for Debian GNU/Linux:

DLA 1168-1: graphicsmagick security update
DSA 4006-2: mupdf security update

DLA 1168-1: graphicsmagick security update
Package : graphicsmagick
Version : 1.3.16-1.1+deb7u14
CVE ID : CVE-2017-16669


A remote denial of service vulnerability has been discovered in
graphicsmagick, a collection of image processing tools and associated
libraries.

A specially crafted file can be used to produce a heap-based buffer
overflow and application crash by exploiting a defect in the
AcquireCacheNexus function in magick/pixel_cache.c.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version
1.3.16-1.1+deb7u14.

We recommend that you upgrade your graphicsmagick packages.

Note: The previous graphicsmagick package inadvertently introduced a
dependency on liblcms2-2. This version of the package returns to using
liblcms1. If your system does not otherwise require liblcms2-2, you
may want to consider removing it following the graphicsmagick upgrade.
