Package        : libpng
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2010-1205 CVE-2010-2249
Debian Bugs    : 533676 572308

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in libpng, a library for
reading and writing PNG files. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:


    It was discovered a buffer overflow in libpng which allows remote
    attackers to execute arbitrary code via a PNG image that triggers 
    an additional data row.


    It was discovered a memory leak in libpng which allows remote
    attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and
    application crash) via a PNG image containing malformed Physical
    Scale (aka sCAL) chunks

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.2.27-2+lenny4.

For the testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distribution, these
problems have been fixed in version 1.2.44-1

We recommend that you upgrade your libpng package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

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.
