    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.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.1.0-5+deb8u4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.2.2-29-g3c2b605-1 or earlier.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libgd2 packages.
