[SECURITY] Fedora Core 2 Update: libpng10-1.0.15-8



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-238
2004-08-04
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 2
Name        : libpng10
Version     : 1.0.15                      
Release     : 8                  
Summary     : Old version of libpng, needed to run old binaries.
Description :
The libpng10 package contains an old version of libpng, a library of
functions for creating and manipulating PNG (Portable Network Graphics)
image format files.

This package is needed if you want to run binaries that were linked
dynamically
with libpng 1.0.x.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

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

During a source code audit, Chris Evans discovered several buffer
overflows in libpng. An attacker could create a carefully crafted PNG
file in such a way that it would cause an application linked with libpng
to execute arbitrary code when the file was opened by a victim. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CAN-2004-0597 to these issues. 

In addition, this audit discovered a potential NULL pointer dereference
in libpng (CAN-2004-0598) and several integer overflow issues
(CAN-2004-0599). An attacker could create a carefully crafted PNG file
in such a way that it would cause an application linked with libpng to
crash when the file was opened by the victim.

Red Hat would like to thank Chris Evans for discovering these issues.
