Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : libpng (MDVSA-2014:084)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 73976

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated libpng packages fix security vulnerabilities :

An integer overflow leading to a heap-based buffer overflow was found in the png_set_sPLT() and png_set_text_2() API functions of libpng. An attacker could create a specially crafted image file and render it with an application written to explicitly call png_set_sPLT() or png_set_text_2() function, could cause libpng to crash or execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running such an application (CVE-2013-7353).

An integer overflow leading to a heap-based buffer overflow was found in the png_set_unknown_chunks() API function of libpng. An attacker could create a specially crafted image file and render it with an application written to explicitly call png_set_unknown_chunks() function, could cause libpng to crash or execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running such an application (CVE-2013-7354).

Solution
