Debian DSA-3619-1 : libgd2 - security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 92327
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.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in libgd2, a library for programmatic graphics creation and manipulation. A remote attacker can take advantage of these flaws to cause a denial-of-service against an application using the libgd2 library (application crash), or potentially to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.

Solution

Upgrade the libgd2 packages.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 2.1.0-5+deb8u4.
