Description

Updated gd packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The gd packages provide a graphics library used for the dynamic creation of images, such as PNG and JPEG.

A missing input sanitization flaw, leading to a buffer overflow, was discovered in the gd library. A specially crafted GD image file could cause an application using the gd library to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-3546)

Users of gd should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.
