Fedora 23 : libpng10-1.0.66-1.fc23 (2015-3868cfa17b)

High Nessus Plugin ID 89211

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

An underflow read was found in png_check_keyword in libpng10. An attacker could possibly use this flaw to cause an out-of-bounds read by tricking an unsuspecting user into processing a specially crafted PNG image.

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.
