Several flaws were discovered in the way giflib decodes GIF images. An
attacker could create a carefully crafted GIF image that could cause
an application using giflib to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary
code when opened by a victim. (CVE-2005-2974, CVE-2005-3350)
All running applications using giflib must be restarted for the update
to take effect.
