Detail

The png_decompress_chunk function in pngrutil.c in libpng 1.0.x before 1.0.53, 1.2.x before 1.2.43, and 1.4.x before 1.4.1 does not properly handle compressed ancillary-chunk data that has a disproportionately large uncompressed representation, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory and CPU consumption, and application hang) via a crafted PNG file, as demonstrated by use of the deflate compression method on data composed of many occurrences of the same character, related to a "decompression bomb" attack.

Title: USN-913-1 -- libpng vulnerabilities
Description: It was discovered that libpng did not properly initialize memory when decoding certain 1-bit interlaced images. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing crafted PNG images, an attacker could possibly use this flaw to read sensitive information stored in memory. This issue only affected Ubuntu 6.06 LTS, 8.04 LTS, 8.10 and 9.04. It was discovered that libpng did not properly handle certain excessively compressed PNG images. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a crafted PNG image, an attacker could possibly use this flaw to consume all available resources, resulting in a denial of service

Title: DSA-2032-1 libpng -- several
Description: Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in libpng, a library for reading and writing PNG files. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2009-2042 libpng does not properly parse 1-bit interlaced images with width values that are not divisible by 8, which causes libpng to include uninitialised bits in certain rows of a PNG file and might allow remote attackers to read portions of sensitive memory via "out-of-bounds pixels" in the file. CVE-2010-0205 libpng does not properly handle compressed ancillary-chunk data that has a disproportionately large uncompressed representation, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted PNG file For the stable distribution, these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.27-2+lenny3. For the testing and unstable distribution, these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.43-1 We recommend that you upgrade your libpng package.
