CVE-2004-0598

New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

The png_handle_iCCP function in libpng 1.2.5 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a certain PNG image that triggers a null dereference.
