    imagemagick vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 16.10
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in ImageMagick.
    
    Software Description:
    - imagemagick: Image manipulation programs and library
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that ImageMagick incorrectly handled certain malformed
    image files. If a user or automated system using ImageMagick were tricked
    into opening a specially crafted image, an attacker could exploit this to
    cause a denial of service or possibly execute code with the privileges of
    the user invoking the program.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
