Updated libpng/libpng12 packages fix security vulnerabilityPublication date: 19 Nov 2015
Affected Mageia releases : 5
Multiple buffer overflows in the png_set_PLTE and png_get_PLTE functions in libpng before 1.6.19 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a small bit-depth value in an IHDR (aka image header) chunk in a PNG image (CVE-2015-8126). This issue also affected libpng 1.2 before 1.2.54. The libpng and libpng12 packages have been updated to versions 1.6.19 and 1.2.54, respectively, fixing this issue.
