Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : chromium (MDKSA-2006:213)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 24598
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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

Synopsis

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Chromium is an OpenGL-based shoot them up game with fine graphics. It is built with a private copy of libpng, and as such could be susceptible to some of the same vulnerabilities :

Buffer overflow in the png_decompress_chunk function in pngrutil.c in libpng before 1.2.12 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors related to 'chunk error processing,' possibly involving the 'chunk_name'. (CVE-2006-3334)

It is questionable whether this issue is actually exploitable, but the patch to correct the issue has been included in versions < 1.2.12.

In addition, an patch to address several old vulnerabilities has been applied to this build. (CVE-2002-1363, CVE-2004-0421, CVE-2004-0597, CVE-2004-0598, CVE-2004-0599)

Packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution

Update the affected chromium and / or chromium-setup packages.
