Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Official Statement from Red Hat (02/14/2008)

Due to the minimal impact of this flaw (temporary DoS by high CPU usage) and low likelihood of this problem being exposed in a way that would allow trust boundary crossing, we currently do not plan to backport a fix for this issue to the versions of gd as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, 3, 4 or 5.
