[SECURITY] Fedora 7 Update: libpng10-1.0.29-1.fc7



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2007-2521
2007-10-24 07:17:43.345038
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : libpng10
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 1.0.29
Release     : 1.fc7
URL         : http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/libpng.html
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:

Certain chunk handlers in libpng10 before 1.0.29 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via crafted (1) pCAL (png_handle_pCAL), (2) sCAL (png_handle_sCAL), (3) tEXt (png_push_read_tEXt), (4) iTXt (png_handle_iTXt), and (5) ztXT (png_handle_ztXt) chunking in PNG images, which trigger out-of-bounds read operations.
