    A vulnerability was discovered in libgd2, the GD graphics library,
    whereby an attacker can employ a specific function call sequence to
    trigger a NULL pointer dereference, subsequently crash the application
    using libgd2, and create a denial of service.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    2.1.0-5+deb8u14.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libgd2 packages.
