Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2003:008: 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 MDKSA-2003:008 (libpng).

A buffer overflow vulnerability was discovered in libpng due to a wrong
calculation of some loop offset values. This buffer overflow can lead to Denial
of Service or even remote compromise.
After the upgrade, all applications that use libpng should be restarted. Many
applications are linked to libpng, so if you are unsure of what applications to
restart, you may wish to reboot the system. MandrakeSoft encourages all users to
upgrade immediately.
