    Package        : imagemagick
    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-5118
    Debian Bug     : 825799
    
    Bob Friesenhahn from the GraphicsMagick project discovered a command
    injection vulnerability in ImageMagick, a program suite for image
    manipulation. An attacker with control on input image or the input
    filename can execute arbitrary commands with the privileges of the user
    running the application. 
    
    This update removes the possibility of using pipe (|) in filenames to
    interact with imagemagick.
    
    It is important that you upgrade the libmagickcore-6.q16-2 and not just
    the imagemagick package. Applications using libmagickcore-6.q16-2 might
    also be affected and need to be restarted after the upgrade.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 6.8.9.9-5+deb8u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your imagemagick packages.
