    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-2497 CVE-2014-9709
    Debian Bug     : 744719
    
    Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in libgd2, a graphics library:
    
    CVE-2014-2497
    
        The gdImageCreateFromXpm() function would try to dereference a NULL
        pointer when reading an XPM file with a special color table. This
        could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via
        crafted XPM files.
    
    CVE-2014-9709
    
        Importing an invalid GIF file using the gdImageCreateFromGif() function
        would cause a read buffer overflow that could allow remote attackers to
        cause a denial of service (crash) via crafted GIF files.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.0.36~rc1~dfsg-6.1+deb7u1.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been
    fixed in version 2.1.0-5.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.1.0-5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libgd2 packages.
