image manipulation. This update fixes a large number of potential security
problems such as null-pointer access and buffer-overflows that might lead
to memory leaks or denial of service. Any of these security problems have

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
in version 8:6.7.7.10-5+deb7u4.
