Package : libgd2 Version : 2.0.36~rc1~dfsg-6.1+deb7u10 CVE ID : CVE-2017-6362

A double-free vulnerability was discovered in the gdImagePngPtr() function in libgd2, a library for programmatic graphics creation and manipulation, which may result in denial of service or potentially the execution of arbitrary code if a specially crafted file is processed.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 2.0.36~rc1~dfsg-6.1+deb7u10.

We recommend that you upgrade your libgd2 packages.
