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

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 62266


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


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.


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