Debian More potential integer overflows have been found in the GD graphics library which weren't covered by our security advisory DSA 589. They could be exploited by a specially crafted graphic and could lead to the execution of arbitrary code on the victim's machine.

Debian Security Advisory DSA 601-1                                        Martin Schulze
November 29th, 2004            

Package        : libgd1
Vulnerability  : integer overflow
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0941 CAN-2004-0990

More potential integer overflows have been found in the GD graphics
library which weren't covered by our security advisory DSA 589.  They
could be exploited by a specially crafted graphic and could lead to
the execution of arbitrary code on the victim's machine.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.8.4-17.woody4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your libgd1 packages.
