Comment 6 Stefan Cornelius 2016-05-10 08:43:12 UTC
Mitigation:

Do not use untrusted magic files.

Comment 7 Tomas Hoger 2016-05-30 10:48:05 UTC
Magic file is really a configuration file for file/libmagic.  The use of untrusted magic file is unlikely, the typical use of file is to identify types of (possibly untrusted) files using fully trusted magic files.  In any typical use case, this does not cross any trust boundary and hence the fix is not planned to be backported as security fix to already released Red Hat products.
