New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

CVE-2018-17100 An int32 overflow can cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted image file

CVE-2018-17101 Out-of-bounds writes can cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted image file

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
