libpng row data buffer overflow

libpng-rowdata-bo (59815) The risk level is classified as HighHigh Risk

Description:

libpng is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by progressive applications when handling image row data. By sending an extra image row data beyond the reported height in the header, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with the privileges of the victim.
