Matviy Kotoniy reported that the gdImageCreateFromGifCtx() function used to load images from GIF format files in libgd2, a library for programmatic graphics creation and manipulation, does not zero stack allocated color map buffers before their use, which may result in information disclosure if a specially crafted file is processed.
