The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
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.
