Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106175
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionIt was discovered that there was a denial of service attack in the libgd2 image library. A corrupt file could have exploited a signedness confusion leading to an infinite loop.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', this issue has been fixed in libgd2 version 2.0.36~rc1~dfsg-6.1+deb7u11.
We recommend that you upgrade your libgd2 packages.
