    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.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.1.0-5+deb8u3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.2.1-1 or earlier.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libgd2 packages.
