Description Thomas Deutschmann gentoo-dev Security 2016-09-02 11:35:12 UTC
Integer overflow in the _gdContributionsAlloc function in gd_interpolation.c in GD Graphics Library (aka libgd) before 2.2.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds memory write or memory consumption) via unspecified vectors.
