    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in libpng, a library for
    reading and writing PNG files. The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    libpng does not properly parse 1-bit interlaced images with width values
    that are not divisible by 8, which causes libpng to include
    uninitialized bits in certain rows of a PNG file and might allow remote
    attackers to read portions of sensitive memory via "out-of-bounds
    pixels" in the file.
    libpng 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
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2.27-2+lenny3.
    For the testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distribution, these
    problems have been fixed in version 1.2.43-1
    We recommend that you upgrade your libpng package.
