Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : libgd (MDVSA-2015:153)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 82406
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Updated libgd packages fix security vulnerabilities :

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).

A buffer read overflow in gd_gif_in.c in the php#68601 bug referenced in the PHP 5.5.21 ChangeLog has been fixed in the libgd package.


Update the affected packages.
