Comment 4 Adam Mariš 2018-08-01 07:53:09 UTC
Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of libpng as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6 and 7 as they did not include the vulnerable code.

Comment 5 Adam Mariš 2018-10-19 10:16:54 UTC
This seems to be an intersection bug - the way pngwriter uses libpng can cause a segmentation fault. Using libpng alone, the issue has not been observed. We do not ship pngwriter in any Red Hat product.

Closing as per comment 5.
