Public bug reported:

There was a USN published on 11/30/16 for several CVEs:

I am running imagemagick on Ubuntu 14.04, and consequently was upgraded
to version 8: via unattended-upgrades. However, after
this upgrade, I find that behavior for creating images from text no
longer works.

This works on 8:
convert -size "126" -font Impact-Regular -fill gray -gravity Center label:"TEST 
TEXT" /tmp/out.png

But on 8: it gives this error:
convert -size "126" -font Impact-Regular -fill gray -gravity Center label:"TEST 
TEXT" /tmp/out.png
convert.im6: no images defined `/tmp/out.png' @ 

Moreover, using the **exact** command (specifically the 3rd one, where width 
but not height is specified) in the [Best Fit To 
Image]( section of the 
Imagemagick documentation fail with the same error:
  convert -background lightblue -fill blue -font Candice \
          -size 160x  label:Anthony     label_size_width.gif

Is this a regression introduced by the security update? If so, is there
a way to fix this?
