Package : libgd2 Version : 2.0.36~rc1~dfsg-6.1+deb7u11 CVE ID : CVE-2018-5711 Debian Bug : #887485

It was discovered that there was a denial-of-service attack in the libgd2 image library. A corrupt file could have exploited a signedness confusion leading to an infinite loop.

We recommend that you upgrade your libgd2 packages.
