Package: tetex-bin Version: 3.0-13 Severity: normal Tags: patch security Hi! tetex-bin 3.0 contains a copy of libgd2 source code in libs/gd. libgd2 had a recent security flaw that allows malicious graphic files to trigger an endless loop. This is not a big deal, but it should get fixed eventually.  has the original libgd2 patch. libgd2 had more serious vulnerabilities in the past (CVE-2004-0990, CVE-2004-0941), though. The best solution would be to build against the system libgd2 library instead of using a code copy. This does not affect 2.0.2, thus Sarge is not affected. (Even if it was, a security update wouln't be warranted, given that it is a client application and no long-running server).
