Can you provide more information about the relationship between
http://sourceforge.net/p/giflib/bugs/82/ and the above instance of
GifFile->SHeight in the malloc call? The
http://sourceforge.net/p/giflib/code/ci/4cc68b315ff9a378aef6664e1be6b2144ad4a5e6/
patch for http://sourceforge.net/p/giflib/bugs/82/ adds a check for
"GifFile->SWidth == 0" but does not add new validation of the
GifFile->SHeight value.
