RHSA-2004-180: libpng

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the libpng packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated libpng packages that fix a out of bounds memory access are now
available.

The libpng package contains a library of functions for creating and
manipulating PNG (Portable Network Graphics) image format files.

Steve Grubb discovered a out of bounds memory access flaw in libpng. An
attacker could carefully craft a PNG file in such a way that it would cause
an application linked to libpng to crash when opened by a victim. This
issue may not be used to execute arbitrary code.

Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages that contain a
backported security fix not vulnerable to this issue.
