A critical security issue has been found in ImageMagick [0][1], allowing arbitrary code execution. In a lot of setups, untrusted files are passed to imagemagick tools, turning this issue into a remote code execution. The issue might have been fixed [2] in versions 7.0.1-1 and 6.9.3-10. There is still some doubts about whether the issue is completely fixed, but these versions don't seem to be vulnerable to the already public exploits, so I think we should upgrade as soon as possible.


This task depends upon

There is already a workaround and the package is out-of-date.
