Fedora 13 : libpng10-1.0.54-1.fc13 (2010-10823)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update addresses two security issues: * CVE-2010-1205, in which a
buffer overflow might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code
via a PNG image that triggers an additional data row. * CVE-2010-2249,
in which a memory leak allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (memory consumption and application crash) via a PNG image
containing malformed Physical Scale (aka sCAL) chunks.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
