Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:079: 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-2004:079 (libpng).


Chris Evans discovered numerous vulnerabilities in the libpng graphics library,
including a remotely exploitable stack-based buffer overrun in the
png_handle_tRNS function, dangerous code in png_handle_sBIT, a possible
NULL-pointer crash in png_handle_iCCP (which is also duplicated in multiple
other locations), a theoretical integer overflow in png_read_png, and integer
overflows during progressive reading.
All users are encouraged to upgrade immediately.
