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

- Ubuntu 19.10 - Ubuntu 19.04 - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS - Ubuntu 16.04 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 19.10:
imagemagick 8:
imagemagick-6.q16 8:
libmagick++-6.q16-8 8:
libmagickcore-6.q16-6 8:
libmagickcore-6.q16-6-extra 8:

Ubuntu 19.04:
imagemagick 8:
imagemagick-6.q16 8:
libmagick++-6.q16-8 8:
libmagickcore-6.q16-6 8:
libmagickcore-6.q16-6-extra 8:

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
imagemagick 8:
imagemagick-6.q16 8:
libmagick++-6.q16-7 8:
libmagickcore-6.q16-3 8:
libmagickcore-6.q16-3-extra 8:
