Synopsis
========

Several vulnerabilities in libpng may allow a remote attacker to crash
applications that handle untrusted images.

Background
==========

libpng is a free ANSI C library used to process and manipulate PNG
images.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 media-libs/libpng < 1.2.21-r3 >= 1.2.21-r3

Description
===========

An off-by-one error when handling ICC profile chunks in the
png_set_iCCP() function was discovered (CVE-2007-5266). George Cook and
Jeff Phillips reported several errors in pngrtran.c, the use of logical
instead of a bitwise functions and incorrect comparisons
(CVE-2007-5268). Tavis Ormandy reported out-of-bounds read errors in
several PNG chunk handling functions (CVE-2007-5269).

Impact
======

A remote attacker could craft an image that when processed or viewed by
an application using libpng would cause the application to terminate
abnormally.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All libpng users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libpng-1.2.21-r3"
