			SCO Security Advisory

Subject:		Linux: libpng progressive image loading vulnerabilities and other buffer overflows
Advisory number: 	CSSA-2002-042.0
Issue date: 		2002 November 12

______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

	There are two buffer overflow vulnerabilities in the libpng code:
	one of which can allow attackers to cause a denial of service,
	and the other that can cause a denial of service with the
	possibility of executing arbitrary code.


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

	System				Package
	----------------------------------------------------------------------

	OpenLinux 3.1.1 Server		prior to libpng-1.0.15-5MR.i386.rpm
					prior to libpng-devel-1.0.15-5MR.i386.rpm
					prior to libpng-devel-static-1.0.15-5MR.i386.rpm

	OpenLinux 3.1.1 Workstation	prior to libpng-1.0.15-5MR.i386.rpm
					prior to libpng-devel-1.0.15-5MR.i386.rpm
					prior to libpng-devel-static-1.0.15-5MR.i386.rpm

	OpenLinux 3.1 Server		prior to libpng-1.0.15-5MR.i386.rpm
					prior to libpng-devel-1.0.15-5MR.i386.rpm
					prior to libpng-devel-static-1.0.15-5MR.i386.rpm

	OpenLinux 3.1 Workstation	prior to libpng-1.0.15-5MR.i386.rpm
					prior to libpng-devel-1.0.15-5MR.i386.rpm
					prior to libpng-devel-static-1.0.15-5MR.i386.rpm


3. Solution

	The proper solution is to install the latest packages. Many
	customers find it easier to use the Caldera System Updater, called
	cupdate (or kcupdate under the KDE environment), to update these
	packages rather than downloading and installing them by hand.
