It links to a debian bug report, which is more informative:


I think they call it a "denial of service" because it occurred in the
VM mail reader (not part of Emacs, of course), when viewing a spam
mail with a malformed image. So someone could email you an image that
would crash Emacs. I don't know if gnus, rmail, or mh-e automatically
display images; I suspect not.
