 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2014:084
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : libpng
 Date    : May 12, 2014
 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated libpng packages fix security vulnerabilities:
 
 An integer overflow leading to a heap-based buffer overflow was found
 in the png_set_sPLT() and png_set_text_2() API functions of libpng. An
 attacker could create a specially-crafted image file and render it
 with an application written to explicitly call png_set_sPLT() or
 png_set_text_2() function, could cause libpng to crash or execute
 arbitrary code with the permissions of the  user running such an
 application (CVE-2013-7353).
 
 An integer overflow leading to a heap-based buffer overflow was found
 in the png_set_unknown_chunks() API function of libpng. An attacker
 could create a specially-crafted image file and render it with an
 application written to explicitly call png_set_unknown_chunks()
 function, could cause libpng to crash or execute arbitrary code
 with the permissions of the user running such an application
 (CVE-2013-7354).
