Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:213: chromium

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the chromium package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:213 (chromium).

Chromium is an OpenGL-based shoot them up game with fine graphics. It
is built with a private copy of libpng, and as such could be
susceptible to some of the same vulnerabilities:
Buffer overflow in the png_decompress_chunk function in pngrutil.c in
libpng before 1.2.12 permits context-dependent attackers to cause a
denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via unspecified
vectors related to 'chunk error processing,' possibly involving the
'chunk_name'. (CVE-2006-3334)
It is questionable whether this issue is actually exploitable, but the
patch to correct the issue has been included in versions < 1.2.12.
In addition, an patch to address several old vulnerabilities has been
applied to this build. (CVE-2002-1363, CVE-2004-0421, CVE-2004-0597,
CVE-2004-0598, CVE-2004-0599)
Packages have been patched to correct these issues.
