libpng buffer overflow

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:7709

Multiple buffer overflows in libpng 1.2.5 and earlier as used in multiple products allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via malformed PNG images in which (1) the png_handle_tRNS function does not properly validate the length of transparency chunk (tRNS) data or the (2) png_handle_sBIT or (3) png_handle_hIST functions do not perform sufficient bounds checking.
