Package        : libgd2
Vulnerability  : integer overflow
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0941 CAN-2004-0990

More potential integer overflows have been found in the GD graphics
library which weren't covered by our security advisory DSA 591.  They
could be exploited by a specially crafted graphic and could lead to
the execution of arbitrary code on the victim's machine.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.1-10woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your libgd2 packages.
