Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2005:199
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : netpbm
Date : October 26, 2005
Affected: 10.2, 2006.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Pnmtopng in netpbm 10.2X, when using the -trans option, uses
uninitialized size and index variables when converting Portable
Anymap (PNM) images to Portable Network Graphics (PNG), which might
allow attackers to execute arbitrary code by modifying the stack.

Netpbm 9.2X is not affected by this vulnerability.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
