Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:1103
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:1103.

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

An uninitialized memory read issue was found in the way libpng processed
certain PNG images that use the Physical Scale (sCAL) extension. An
attacker could create a specially-crafted PNG image that, when opened,
could cause an application using libpng to crash. (CVE-2011-2692)

Users of libpng and libpng10 should upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. All running
applications using libpng or libpng10 must be restarted for the update to
take effect.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
