Name        : libpng10
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 1.0.58
Release     : 1.fc16
URL         : http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/libpng.html
Summary     : Old version of libpng, needed to run old binaries
Description :
The libpng10 package contains an old version of libpng, a library of functions
for creating and manipulating PNG (Portable Network Graphics) image format

This package is needed if you want to run binaries that were linked dynamically
with libpng 1.0.x.

Update Information:

A type conversion flaw leading to an out-of-bounds heap buffer read was found in the way libpng10, a library of functions for manipulation PNG image format files, performed expansion of certain iCCP, iTXt, and zTXt PNG image file chunks.

A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted Portable Network Graphics (PNG) image file, which once opened in an application, linked against libpng10, could lead to denial of service or in some cases, execution of arbitrary code without permission of the user running such an application.

* Fri Mar  9 2012 Paul Howarth <paul at city-fan.org> 1.0.58-1
- update to 1.0.58
  - fix bug with png_handle_hIST with odd chunk length
  - fix incorrect type (int copy should be png_size_t copy) in png_inflate()
  - fix off-by-one bug in png_handle_sCAL() when using fixed point arithmetic,
    causing out-of-bounds read in png_set_sCAL() because of failure to copy
    the string terminators
  - remove the png_free() of unused png_ptr->current_text from pngread.c
  - remove all of the assembler code from pnggccrd.c and just "return 2;"
* Sun Feb 19 2012 Paul Howarth <paul at city-fan.org> 1.0.57-1
