Description Josh Bressers 2006-06-08 18:00:21 UTC
gd denial of service

A flaw was found in the way gd loads certain malformed GIF images.  If
a user loads a broken GIF image it is possible to cause gd to enter an
infinite loop.

There is more information in the bugtraq mail:

This issue also affects FC4

Testcase based on the C in the bugtraq mail.

This testcase doesn't seem to crash when loading a gif image via a file stream,
but does when the data is loaded via a pointer.
