Debian DLA-1817-1 : libgd2 security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 125837


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


An unitialized read was discovered in the XBM support of libgd2, a library for programmatic graphics creation and manipulation. The unitialized read might lead to information disclosure.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 2.1.0-5+deb8u13.

We recommend that you upgrade your libgd2 packages.

Upgrade the affected packages.
