Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2014-04-11 03:53:57 UTC
An integer overflow leading to a heap-based buffer overflow was found in the png_set_unknown_chunks() API function of libpng. A attacker could create a specially-crafated image file and render it with an application written to explicitly call png_set_unknown_chunks() function, could cause libpng to crash or execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running such an application.

The vendor mentions that internal calls use safe values. These issues could potentially affect applications that use the libpng API. Apparently no such applications were identified.
