Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : libpng12 (MDVSA-2015:071)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 82324

Synopsis

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

Description

Updated libpng12 package fixes security vulnerabilities :

The png_do_expand_palette function in libpng before 1.6.8 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a PLTE chunk of zero bytes or a NULL palette, related to pngrtran.c and pngset.c (CVE-2013-6954).

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

Update the affected lib64png12-devel and / or lib64png12_0 packages.
