Package : libpng Vulnerability : integer overflow Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2011-3026

Jueri Aedla discovered an integer overflow in the libpng PNG library, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed image is processed.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your libpng packages.
