New imagemagick packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/imagemagick-6.8.6_10-i486-2_slack14.1.txz: Rebuilt. This update addresses several security issues in ImageMagick, including: Insufficient shell characters filtering allows code execution (CVE-2016-3714) Server Side Request Forgery (CVE-2016-3718) File deletion (CVE-2016-3715) File moving (CVE-2016-3716) Local file read (CVE-2016-3717) To mitigate these issues, the default policy.xml config file has been modified to disable all of the vulnerable coders. For more information, see: ( Security fix )
