Package : libgd2 CVE ID : CVE-2014-2497 CVE-2014-9709 Debian Bug : 744719

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in libgd2, a graphics library:

CVE-2014-2497

The gdImageCreateFromXpm() function would try to dereference a NULL
pointer when reading an XPM file with a special color table. This
could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via
crafted XPM files.

CVE-2014-9709

Importing an invalid GIF file using the gdImageCreateFromGif() function
would cause a read buffer overflow that could allow remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (crash) via crafted GIF files.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 2.0.36~rc1~dfsg-6.1+deb7u1.

For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 2.1.0-5.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 2.1.0-5.

We recommend that you upgrade your libgd2 packages.
