Fedora 20 : libpng10-1.0.63-1.fc20 (2015-2830)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 81711

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update addresses a couple of buffer overflows that might allow context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via very wide PNG images.

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 package.
