Subject:  [Security Announce] [ MDKSA-2006:213 ] - Updated chromium packages to fix embedded libpng vulnerabilities
Date:  Thu, 16 Nov 2006 16:24:00 -0700

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:213 http://www.mandriva.com/security/ _______________________________________________________________________ Package : chromium Date : November 16, 2006 Affected: 2007.0, Corporate 3.0 _______________________________________________________________________ Problem 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. (CAN-2002-1363, CAN-2004-0421, CAN-2004-0597, CAN-2004-0598, CAN-2004-0599) Packages have been patched to correct these issues. _______________________________________________________________________ References: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2002-1363 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2004-0421 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2004-0597 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2004-0598 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2004-0599 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-3334 _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Linux 2007.0: 7d7fd24f8be5c881673c11ed7fdda1d0 2007.0/i586/chromium-0.9.12-25.1mdv2007.0.i586.rpm 6175ab1df71466a69049dbda899c7c4b 2007.0/i586/chromium-setup-0.9.12-25.1mdv2007.0.i586.rpm 4dda1bbb70cce5cb6f1112995992ee1e 2007.0/SRPMS/chromium-0.9.12-25.1mdv2007.0.src.rpm Mandriva Linux 2007.0/X86_64: c2b87550ef24da183d0fe78e850080b5 2007.0/x86_64/chromium-0.9.12-25.1mdv2007.0.x86_64.rpm 91e024a81f7ff04e49f429259feaf4cd 2007.0/x86_64/chromium-setup-0.9.12-25.1mdv2007.0.x86_64.rpm 4dda1bbb70cce5cb6f1112995992ee1e 2007.0/SRPMS/chromium-0.9.12-25.1mdv2007.0.src.rpm Corporate 3.0: 69ca9e0a4887c915bc283164b763b054 corporate/3.0/i586/chromium-0.9.12-21.1.C30mdk.i586.rpm 4ca444ca9edb34229f0d1449f2e4d82f corporate/3.0/i586/chromium-setup-0.9.12-21.1.C30mdk.i586.rpm 5007614bdfc283a0f5bb854955606ed1 corporate/3.0/SRPMS/chromium-0.9.12-21.1.C30mdk.src.rpm Corporate 3.0/X86_64: 96a4f2c6ba97c16d04f816656a88d674 corporate/3.0/x86_64/chromium-0.9.12-21.1.C30mdk.x86_64.rpm 5b229452f499143e5d1dd73420d120aa corporate/3.0/x86_64/chromium-setup-0.9.12-21.1.C30mdk.x86_64.rpm 5007614bdfc283a0f5bb854955606ed1 corporate/3.0/SRPMS/chromium-0.9.12-21.1.C30mdk.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
