VuXML IDDescription
57c705d6-12ae-11dd-bab7-0016179b2dd5png -- unknown chunk processing uninitialized memory access

Secunia reports:

Tavis Ormandy has reported a vulnerability in libpng, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a Denial of Service, disclose potentially sensitive information, or potentially compromise an application using the library.

The vulnerability is caused due to the improper handling of PNG chunks unknown to the library. This can be exploited to trigger the use of uninitialized memory in e.g. a free() call via unknown PNG chunks having a length of zero.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code, but requires that the application calls the png_set_read_user_chunk_fn() function or the png_set_keep_unknown_chunks() function under specific conditions.

edef3f2f-82cf-11df-bcce-0018f3e2eb82png -- libpng decompression buffer overflow

The PNG project describes the problem in an advisory:

Several versions of libpng through 1.4.2 (and through 1.2.43 in the older series) contain a bug whereby progressive applications such as web browsers (or the rpng2 demo app included in libpng) could receive an extra row of image data beyond the height reported in the header, potentially leading to an out-of-bounds write to memory (depending on how the application is written) and the possibility of execution of an attacker's code with the privileges of the libpng user (including remote compromise in the case of a libpng-based browser visiting a hostile web site).

262b92fe-81c8-11e1-8899-001ec9578670png -- memory corruption/possible remote code execution

The PNG project reports:

libpng fails to correctly handle malloc() failures for text chunks (in png_set_text_2()), which can lead to memory corruption and the possibility of remote code execution.
