    CVE ID         : CVE-2012-0247 CVE-2012-0248
    
    Two security vulnerabilities related to EXIF processing were
    discovered in ImageMagick, a suite of programs to manipulate images:
    
    CVE-2012-0247
    	When parsing a maliciously crafted image with incorrect offset
    	and count in the ResolutionUnit tag in EXIF IFD0, ImageMagick
    	writes two bytes to an invalid address.
    
    CVE-2012-0248
    	Parsing a maliciously crafted image with an IFD whose all IOP
    	tags value offsets point to the beginning of the IFD itself
    	results in an endless loop and a denial of service.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed
    in version 8:6.6.0.4-3+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 8:6.6.9.7-6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your imagemagick packages.
