SuSE 10 Security Update : libpng (ZYPP Patch Number 2325)
High Nessus Plugin ID 29507
SynopsisThe remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionThe 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)
Additionally 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.
SolutionApply ZYPP patch number 2325.
