MDKSA-2004:132: gd Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the gd package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:132 (gd).

Integer overflows were reported in the GD Graphics Library (libgd) 2.0.28, and
possibly other versions. These overflows allow remote attackers to cause a
denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via PNG image files with
large image rows values that lead to a heap-based buffer overflow in the
gdImageCreateFromPngCtx() function.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
