User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Team   
Mandrake Bug could potentially lead to a DoS (Denial of Service) condition in a daemon that uses libpng to process PNG imagaes.

Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory

 Package name:           libpng
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:040
 Date:                   April 29th, 2004

 Affected versions:	 10.0, 9.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1,
			 Multi Network Firewall 8.2

 Problem Description:

 Steve Grubb discovered that libpng would access memory that is out of
 bounds when creating an error message.  The impact of this bug is not
 clear, but it could lead to a core dump in a program using libpng, or
 could result in a DoS (Denial of Service) condition in a daemon that
 uses libpng to process PNG imagaes.
 The updated packages are patched to correct the vulnerability.
