Fedora 17 : libpng10-1.0.57-1.fc17 (2012-2003)

High Nessus Plugin ID 58154


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update addresses an integer overflow in the libpng10 PNG library, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed image is processed.

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.
