Cairo read_png function buffer overflow
|cairo-readpng-bo (38771)||High Risk|
Cairo is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by an integer overflow in the read_png function. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted PNG file, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the affected application to crash.
Upgrade to the latest version of Cairo (1.4.12 or later), available from the Cairo Web site. See References.
