Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51393
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2003:564
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2003:564
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLA-2003:564.

libpng is a library used to create and manipulate PNG (Portable
Network Graphics) image files.

Glenn Randers-Pehrson discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in
unpatched libpng versions prior to 1.0.15 and 1.2.5(*) (inclusive).

Programs such as web browsers and various others common applications
make use of libpng. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to
remotely run arbitrary code or crash such applications by using a
specially crafted png image.

This update provides patched versions of libpng with fixes for this
vulnerability.

* The libpng-1.2.X series is available only in Conectiva Linux 8 in
the libpng3 package.


Solution:
The apt tool can be used to perform RPM package upgrades
by running 'apt-get update' followed by 'apt-get upgrade'
