Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : libpng (multiple_vulnerabilities_in_libpng2)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party
software.

Description :

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address
security updates :

- Integer overflow in libpng, as used in Google Chrome
before 17.0.963.56, allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service or possibly have unspecified other
impact via unknown vectors that trigger an integer
truncation. (CVE-2011-3026)

- The png_set_text_2 function in pngset.c in libpng 1.0.x
before 1.0.59, 1.2.x before 1.2.49, 1.4.x before 1.4.11,
and 1.5.x before 1.5.10 allows remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (crash) or execute arbitrary code
via a crafted text chunk in a PNG image file, which
triggers a memory allocation failure that is not
properly handled, leading to a heap-based buffer
overflow. (CVE-2011-3048)
