[SECURITY] Fedora Core 1 Update: libpng-1.2.5-4



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-173
2004-06-18
---------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Product     : Fedora Core 1
Name        : libpng
Version     : 1.2.5
Release     : 4
Summary     : A library of functions for manipulating PNG image format
files.
Description :
The libpng package contains a library of functions for creating and
manipulating PNG (Portable Network Graphics) image format files.  PNG
is a bit-mapped graphics format similar to the GIF format.  PNG was
created to replace the GIF format, since GIF uses a patented data
compression algorithm.
 
Libpng should be installed if you need to manipulate PNG format image
files.
 
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:
 
During an audit of Red Hat Linux updates, the Fedora Legacy team found a
security issue in libpng that had not been fixed in Fedora Core. An
attacker could carefully craft a PNG file in such a way that
it would cause an application linked to libpng to crash or potentially
execute arbitrary code when opened by a victim.
