Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

The sPLT chunk handling in libpng was incorrect and a handcrafted PNG file could be use to cause an out-of-bounds read, effectively crashing the PNG viewer or webbrowser. (CVE-2006-5793)

Additionaly a 2 byte stackoverflow was fixed which we do not believe to be exploitable. It will cause an abort of the viewer or webbrowser in SUSE Linux 10.0 and newer due to string overflow checking.
(CVE-2006-3334)

Solution

Update the affected libpng packages.
