    Package        : libpng, libpng3
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2002-1363
    Glenn Randers-Pehrson discovered a problem in connection with 16-bit
    samples from libpng, an interface for reading and writing PNG
    (Portable Network Graphics) format files.  The starting offsets for
    the loops are calculated incorrectly which causes a buffer overrun
    beyond the beginning of the row buffer.
    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 1.0.12-3.woody.3 for libpng and in version
    1.2.1-1.1.woody.3 for libpng3.
    For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed
    in version 1.0.5-1.1 for libpng.  There are no other libpng packages.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.12-7 for libpng and in version 1.2.5-8 for libpng3.
    We recommend that you upgrade your libpng packages.
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
