Description

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in libgd2, a library for programmatic graphics creation and manipulation. A remote attacker can take advantage of these flaws to cause a denial-of-service against an application using the libgd2 library.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 2.1.0-5+deb8u3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 2.2.1-1 or earlier.

We recommend that you upgrade your libgd2 packages.
