Fedora 27 : libpng10 (2018-3e04e9fe54)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 111397

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

Fix for CVE-2018-13785: the libpng10 library was vulnerable to an integer overflow and resultant divide-by-zero in the pngrutil.c:png_check_chunk_length() function. An attacker could exploit this to cause a denial of service via a crafted PNG file.

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

Solution

Update the affected libpng10 package.
