Slackware-12.2 ChangeLog (2012-02-22)

Wed Feb 22 18:14:58 UTC 2012

  • patches/packages/libpng-1.2.47-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz
    All branches of libpng prior to versions 1.5.9, 1.4.9, 1.2.47, and 1.0.57,
    respectively, fail to correctly validate a heap allocation in
    png_decompress_chunk(), which can lead to a buffer-overrun and the
    possibility of execution of hostile code on 32-bit systems.
    For more information, see:

    (* Security fix *)
