IBM Informix Genero < 2.41 png_decompress_chunk Integer Overflow

high Nessus Plugin ID 64379
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.


The remote host has software installed that is potentially affected by an integer overflow vulnerability.


The installed version of IBM Informix Genero is earlier than 2.41 and is, therefore, potentially affected by an integer overflow vulnerability in the libpng library used by this application. When decompressing certain PNG image files, this could be exploited to crash the application or even execute arbitrary code.


Upgrade to IBM Informix Genero 2.41 or later.
