Mandrakelinux Advisories: libpng, mc

Apr 30, 2004, 11:28 (0 Talkback[s])

Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory


Package name: libpng
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:040
Date: April 29th, 2004
Affected versions: 10.0, 9.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1, Multi Network Firewall 8.2


Problem Description:

Steve Grubb discovered that libpng would access memory that is out of bounds when creating an error message. The impact of this bug is not clear, but it could lead to a core dump in a program using libpng, or could result in a DoS (Denial of Service) condition in a daemon that uses libpng to process PNG imagaes.

The updated packages are patched to correct the vulnerability.
