Description

Chromium is an OpenGL-based shoot them up game with fine graphics. It is built with a private copy of libpng, and as such could be susceptible to some of the same vulnerabilities :

Buffer overflow in the png_decompress_chunk function in pngrutil.c in libpng before 1.2.12 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors related to 'chunk error processing,' possibly involving the 'chunk_name'. (CVE-2006-3334)

It is questionable whether this issue is actually exploitable, but the patch to correct the issue has been included in versions < 1.2.12.

In addition, an patch to address several old vulnerabilities has been applied to this build. (CVE-2002-1363, CVE-2004-0421, CVE-2004-0597, CVE-2004-0598, CVE-2004-0599)

Packages have been patched to correct these issues.
