infamous41md reports about the GD Graphics Library :

There is an integer overflow when allocating memory in the routine that handles loading PNG image files. This later leads to heap data structures being overwritten. If an attacker tricked a user into loading a malicious PNG image, they could leverage this into executing arbitrary code in the context of the user opening image.


Update the affected packages.
