Description Vincent Danen 2011-09-23 11:15:49 EDT
It was reported [1] that libpng 1.5.4 suffered from a flaw when encountering a malformed cHRM chunk in a PNG graphics file.  libpng would perform a divide-by-zero, which would cause libpng, or any application linked to libpng, to crash.

This flaw only affected libpng 1.5.4 where it was introduced, and is corrected in version 1.5.5. [2]

Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of libpng as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5, or 6.
Comment 1 Vincent Danen 2011-09-23 11:17:17 EDT
This does not affect anything we ship; we do not provide libpng 1.5.x in any product.
