    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Imagemagick, a program suite for
    image manipulation. This update fixes a large number of potential security
    problems such as null-pointer access and buffer-overflows that might lead
    to memory leaks or denial of service. Any of these security problems have
    a CVE number assigned.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 8:6.7.7.10-5+deb7u4.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem was already fixed in
    version 8:6.8.9.9-5+deb8u1, in the last point release.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your imagemagick packages.
