Synopsis
========

A null pointer dereference in libpng might allow remote attackers to
execute 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 < 1.6.27 >= 1.6.27
>= 1.5.28
>= 1.2.57

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

A null pointer dereference was discovered in libpng in the
png_push_save_buffer function. In order to be vulnerable, an
application has to load a text chunk into the PNG structure, then
delete all text, then add another text chunk to the same PNG structure,
which seems to be an unlikely sequence, but it is possible.

Impact
======

A remote attacker, by enticing a user to process a specially crafted
PNG file, could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
process.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All libpng 1.6.x users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libpng-1.6.27"

All libpng 1.5.x users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=media-libs/libpng-1.5.28:1.5"

All libpng 1.2.x users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=media-libs/libpng-1.2.57:1.2"
