Re: Multiple Vulnerabilities in libpng

It will be interesting to see how long before libpng fixes all these errors, as compared to how long it would take for MS libraries. wink

You've never had windows or something... ? lol It's very easy to do it in win - this is one of the best techniques of sending someone a trojan or virus attached to an image or flash animation. If the file is connected with some application this could potentialy be a problem.

ohh ... never thought about it this way - i always believed that either you need binaries or scripts that are automaticly executed by stupid apps

but i see, that if a script (in the pic) is interpreted by the lib reading the pic, this can be bad - ok, now it's clear - thanx
