DESCRIPTION
 libpng[1] is a library for manipulating PNG image format files.
 
 Chris Evans found several vulnerabilities in unpatched libpng
 versions pior to 1.0.16rc1 and 1.2.6rc1:
 
 1. Buffer overflow[2] vulnerabilities which could allow a remote
 attacker to execute arbitrary code via a malicious PNG image.
 
 2. NULL-pointer reference[3] vulnerabilities that could allow a
 remote attacker to cause an application to crash via a malicious PNG
 image.
 
 3. Integer overflow[4] vulnerabilities that could allow a remote
 attacker to cause an application to crash via a malicious PNG image.


SOLUTION
 It is recommended that all Conectiva Linux users upgrade their
 packages.
 
 IMPORTANT: all applications linked against libpng must be restarted
 after the upgrade in order to close the vulnerabilities.
