Fedora 7 : libpng10-1.0.26-1.fc7.1 (2007-0004)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 62266
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

The png_handle_tRNS function in pngrutil.c in libpng before 1.0.25 and 1.2.x before 1.2.17 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a grayscale PNG image with a bad tRNS chunk CRC value.

This update to libpng 1.0.26 resolves this problem.

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.

Solution

Update the affected libpng10, libpng10-debuginfo and / or libpng10-devel packages.
