New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Updated gd and libgd packages fix security vulnerability :

The gdImageCreateFromXpm function in gdxpm.c in the gd image library allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted color table in an XPM file (CVE-2014-2497).
