These functions failed to check for an out-of-range palette when reading or writing PNG files with a bit_depth less than 8. Some applications might read the bit depth from the IHDR chunk and allocate memory for a 2^N entry palette, while libpng can return a palette with up to 256 entries even when the bit depth is less than 8. libpng versions 1.6.19, 1.5.24, 1.4.17, 1.2.54, and 1.0.64 were released today (12 November 2015) to fix this vulnerability. See libpng.sourceforge.net regards, Glenn Randers-Pehrson libpng custodian
