    This updates fixes many vulnerabilities in imagemagick: Various memory
    handling problems and cases of missing or incomplete input sanitising
    may result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code if
    malformed TIFF, WPG, RLE, RAW, PSD, Sun, PICT, VIFF, HDR, Meta, Quantum,
    PDB, DDS, DCM, EXIF, RGF or BMP files are processed.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 8:6.8.9.9-5+deb8u4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your imagemagick packages.
