Synopsis
========

Two vulnerabilities have been found in libpng, possibly resulting in
execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

libpng is a standard library used to process PNG (Portable Network
Graphics) images. It is used by several programs, including web
browsers and potentially server processes.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 media-libs/libpng < 1.6.16 >= 1.6.16
*>= 1.5.21
*>= 1.2.52

Description
===========

Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in libpng:

* The png_user_version_check function contains an out-of-bounds memory
access error (libpng 1.6.15 Release Notes)
* The png_combine_row function contains an integer overflow error,
which could result in a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2014-9495)

Impact
======

A context-dependent attacker could entice a user to open a specially
crafted PNG file using an application linked against libpng, possibly
resulting in execution of arbitrary code.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All libpng 1.6 users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libpng-1.6.16"

All libpng 1.5 users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libpng-1.5.21"
