The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


It was discovered that multiple integer overflows in the GIF image loader in the GDK Pixbuf library may result in denial of service and potentially the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed image file is opened.


Upgrade the gdk-pixbuf packages.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 2.31.1-2+deb8u7.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 2.36.5-2+deb9u2. In addition this update provides fixes for CVE-2017-6312, CVE-2017-6313 and CVE-2017-6314.
