(libpng: Information disclosure)
Jeff Phillips discovered that libpng does not properly parse 1-bit
interlaced images with width values that are not divisible by 8, which
causes libpng to include uninitialized bits in certain rows of a PNG
A remote attacker might entice a user to open a specially crafted PNG
file, possibly resulting in the disclosure of sensitive memory
There is no known workaround at this time.
