Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 1 2004-237: libpng

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the libpng package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2004-237 (libpng).

The libpng package contains a library of functions for creating and
manipulating PNG (Portable Network Graphics) image format files. PNG
is a bit-mapped graphics format similar to the GIF format. PNG was
created to replace the GIF format, since GIF uses a patented data
compression algorithm.

Libpng should be installed if you need to manipulate PNG format image
files.

several buffer overflows were found in libpng. A possible hacker could create
a carefully crafted PNG file in such a way that it would cause an
application linked with libpng to execute arbitrary code when the file
was opened by a victim.
