    Several issues have been discovered in ImageMagick, a popular set of
    programs and libraries for image manipulation. These issues include
    several problems in memory handling that can result in a denial of
    service attack or in execution of arbitrary code by an attacker with
    control on the image input.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 8:6.8.9.9-5+deb8u6.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 8:6.9.6.5+dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your imagemagick packages.
