USN-3060-1: GD library vulnerabilities
10 August 2016
The GD library could be made to crash or run programs if it processed a specially crafted image file.
- libgd2 - GD Graphics Library
It was discovered that the GD library incorrectly handled certain malformed
TGA images. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a
specially crafted TGA image, an attacker could cause a denial of service.
It was discovered that the GD library incorrectly handled memory when using
gdImageScale(). A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a
denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-6207)
