Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.57049
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-298-1 (libgd2)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-298-1 (libgd2)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to libgd2
announced via advisory USN-298-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.04
Ubuntu 5.10
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Xavier Roche discovered that libgd's function for reading GIF image
data did not sufficiently verify its validity. Specially crafted GIF
images could cause an infinite loop which used up all available CPU
resources. Since libgd is often used in PHP and Perl web applications,
this could lead to a remote Denial of Service vulnerability.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 5.04:
libgd2-noxpm 2.0.33-1.1ubuntu1.5.04
libgd2-xpm 2.0.33-1.1ubuntu1.5.04

Ubuntu 5.10:
libgd2-noxpm 2.0.33-1.1ubuntu1.5.10
libgd2-xpm 2.0.33-1.1ubuntu1.5.10

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
libgd2-noxpm 2.0.33-2ubuntu5.1
libgd2-xpm 2.0.33-2ubuntu5.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to reboot your computer to
effect the necessary changes.
