Most do not appear to have issued any package updates to close the shell exploit. Perhaps the opinion is that major new versions will be introduced as part of major distribution releases and it is ok for users to exposed to problems for two or three years. As an example Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS (which is supposed to be getting security updates) has not provided ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick package updates in 3 years. Even NebBSD pkgsrc does not appear to have created a new version to address the "ImageTragick" issues. What is the point of security notices and advisories if there is no response from the community to provide updates to protect the majority of their users (who are using 'stable' releases) from the problems?
