    Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in libgd2, a library for
    programmatic graphics creation and manipulation, which may result in
    denial of service or potentially the execution of arbitrary code if a
    malformed file is processed.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.1.0-5+deb8u9.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 2.2.4-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libgd2 packages.
