NULL Pointer Dereference

The png_handle_sCAL function in pngrutil.c in libpng 1.0.x before 1.0.55, 1.2.x before 1.2.45, 1.4.x before 1.4.8, and 1.5.x before 1.5.4 does not properly handle invalid sCAL chunks, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted PNG image

CVE-2011-2692 8.8 - High - July 17, 2011

Buffer Overflow

Memory leak in pngrutil.c in libpng before 1.2.44, and 1.4.x before 1.4.3

CVE-2010-2249 6.5 - Medium - June 30, 2010

Memory leak in pngrutil.c in libpng before 1.2.44, and 1.4.x before 1.4.3, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and application crash) via a PNG image containing malformed Physical Scale (aka sCAL) chunks.

Memory Leak

Buffer overflow in pngpread.c in libpng before 1.2.44 and 1.4.x before 1.4.3, as used in progressive applications, might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a PNG image

The png_decompress_chunk function in pngrutil.c in libpng 1.0.x before 1.0.53, 1.2.x before 1.2.43, and 1.4.x before 1.4.1 does not properly handle compressed ancillary-chunk data that has a disproportionately large uncompressed representation, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory and CPU consumption, and application hang) via a crafted PNG file, as demonstrated by use of the deflate compression method on data composed of many occurrences of the same character, related to a "decompression bomb" attack.

Resource Exhaustion

Multiple off-by-one errors in libpng before 1.2.32beta01, and 1.4 before 1.4.0beta34

CVE-2008-3964 - September 11, 2008
