Fedora 13 : libpng10-1.0.54-1.fc13 (2010-10823)

High Nessus Plugin ID 47771


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update addresses two security issues: * CVE-2010-1205, in which a buffer overflow might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a PNG image that triggers an additional data row. * CVE-2010-2249, in which a memory leak allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and application crash) via a PNG image containing malformed Physical Scale (aka sCAL) chunks.

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.


Update the affected libpng10 package.
