    Details:

    handled indirect offset values. An attacker could use this issue to cause
    PHP to consume resources or crash, resulting in a denial of service.

    It was discovered that PHP incorrectly handled certain values when using
    the imagecrop function. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause
    PHP to crash, resulting in a denial of service, obtain sensitive
    information, or possibly execute arbitrary code. This issue only affected
    Ubuntu 13.10. (CVE-2013-7226, CVE-2013-7327, CVE-2013-7328, CVE-2014-2020)
