New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated libpng package fixes security vulnerabilities :
The png_push_read_chunk function in pngpread.c in the progressive decoder in libpng 1.6.x through 1.6.9 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and CPU consumption) via an IDAT chunk with a length of zero (CVE-2014-0333).
libpng versions 1.6.9 through 1.6.15 have an integer-overflow vulnerability in png_combine_row() when decoding very wide interlaced images, which can allow an attacker to overwrite an arbitrary amount of memory with arbitrary (attacker-controlled) data (CVE-2014-9495).
SolutionUpdate the affected lib64png-devel and / or lib64png16_16 packages.
