Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0356
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0356.

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

A flaw was found in the handling of malformed images in libpng. An attacker
could create a carefully crafted PNG image file in such a way that it could
cause an application linked with libpng to crash when the file was
manipulated. (CVE-2007-2445)

A flaw was found in the sPLT chunk handling code in libpng. An attacker
could create a carefully crafted PNG image file in such a way that it could
cause an application linked with libpng to crash when the file was opened.
(CVE-2006-5793)

Users of libpng should update to these updated packages which contain
backported patches to correct these issues.
