ADVISORY - 2nd June 2016 - Update your Peppermint system.
« on: June 02, 2016, 01:02:57 pm »
If you have Imagemagick installed, update your system now .. a fix has been released that addresses a few vulnerabilities in imagemagick that allowed injecting commands via an image file or filename. A remote attacker could use this issue to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5118) .. This was primarily only a problem for people hosting websites that allowed uploaded image files to be manipulated automatically by imagemagick, but it can't hurt to be sure so even if you're running a home system and not a webserver we still advise you get this update.
