Description

Heap-based buffer overflow in the png_combine_row function in libpng before 1.5.21 and 1.6.x before 1.6.16, when running on 64-bit systems, might allow context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a "very wide interlaced" PNG image.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-libpng16-16
  • suse-upgrade-libpng16-16-32bit
  • suse-upgrade-libpng16-compat-devel
  • suse-upgrade-libpng16-devel

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
