+ <package name="media-libs/libpng" auto="yes" arch="*">

+ <background>
+ <p>
+ libpng is a free ANSI C library used to process and manipulate PNG
+ images.

+ <description>
+ <p>
+ Mats Palmgren fixed an error in file pngrutil.c in which the trans[]
+ array might be not allocated because of images with a bad tRNS chunk
+ CRC value.
+ </p>
+ </description>
+ <impact type="normal">
+ <p>
+ A remote attacker could craft an image that when processed or viewed by
+ an application using libpng causes the application to terminate
+ abnormally.
+ </p>
+ </impact>
+ <workaround>
+ <p>
+ There is no known workaround at this time.
+ </p>
+ </workaround>
+ <resolution>
+ <p>
+ Please note that due to separate bugs in libpng 1.2.17, Gentoo does not
+ provide libpng-1.2.17 but libpng-1.2.18. All libpng users should
+ upgrade to the latest version:
+ </p>
+ <code>
+ # emerge --sync
+ # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-libs/libpng-1.2.18&quot;</code>
