Debian Security Advisory DSA 140-2            Martin Schulze
August 5th, 2002

Package        : libpng, libpng3
Vulnerability  : Buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

In addition to the advisory DSA 140-1 the packages below fix another
potential buffer overflow.  The PNG libraries implement a safety
margin which is also included in a newer upstream release.  Thanks to
Glenn Randers-Pehrson for informing us.

This problem has been fixed in version 1.0.12-3.woody.2 of libpng and
version 1.2.1-1.1.woody.2 of libpng3 for the current stable
distribution (woody).

We recommend that you upgrade your libpng packages.

wget url
	will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
