[SECURITY] [DLA 484-1] graphicsmagick security update
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Version : 1.3.16-1.1+deb7u1
CVE ID : CVE-2015-8808 CVE-2016-2317 CVE-2016-2318
CVE-2016-3714 CVE-2016-3715 CVE-2016-3716
Debian Bug : 814732
Several security vulnerabilities were discovered in graphicsmagick a
tool to manipulate image files.
GraphicsMagick is a fork of ImageMagick and also affected by
vulnerabilities collectively known as ImageTragick, that are the
consequence of lack of sanitization of untrusted input. An attacker
with control on the image input could, with the privileges of the user
running the application, execute code (CVE-2016-3714), make HTTP GET
or FTP requests (CVE-2016-3718), or delete (CVE-2016-3715), move
(CVE-2016-3716), or read (CVE-2016-3717) local files.
To address these concerns the following changes have been made:
1. Remove automatic detection/execution of MVG based on file header or
2. Remove the ability to cause an input file to be deleted based on a
3. Improve the safety of delegates.mgk by removing gnuplot support,
removing manual page support, and by adding -dSAFER to all
4. Sanity check the MVG image primitive filename argument to assure
that "magick:" prefix strings will not be interpreted. Please note
that this patch will break intentional uses of magick prefix
strings in MVG and so some MVG scripts may fail. We will search
for a more flexible solution.
In addition the following issues have been fixed:
Assure that GIF decoder does not use unitialized data and cause an
CVE-2016-2317 and CVE-2016-2318
Vulnerabilities that allow to read or write outside memory bounds
(heap, stack) as well as some null-pointer derreferences to cause a
denial of service when parsing SVG files.
For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version
We recommend that you upgrade your graphicsmagick packages.
