Fedora 8 : libpng10-1.0.41-1.fc8 (2008-9393)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 34759
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update includes an upstream fix for a memory leak within the 'png_handle_tEXt()' function in pngrutil.c, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) via a specially crafted PNG image.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected libpng10 package.
