Insight

Insight

The gd packages provide a graphics library used for the dynamic creation of images, such as PNG and JPEG. A missing input sanitization flaw, leading to a buffer overflow, was discovered in the gd library. A specially-crafted GD image file could cause an application using the gd library to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-3546) Users of gd should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.
