Description Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen gentoo-dev 2007-05-19 22:14:24 UTC
The following test case using libgd 2.0.34 apparently leads to an infinite loop in the libpng decoder. 
 The infinite loop seems to occur between the libpng code (png_read_data()) and the libgd callback (gdPngReadData()) which may not properly detect truncated input. The libpng’s png_read_info() function hence never returns, and the library consumme 100% CPU. 
/* id: gdbad3.c, Xavier Roche, May. 2007 */
/* gcc gdbad3.c -o bad -lgd && ./bad */

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include "gd.h"

static const unsigned char pngdata[93];
int main(void) {
  gdImagePtr im;
  if ( ( im = gdImageCreateFromPngPtr(93, (char*) &pngdata[0]) ) != NULL) {
    fprintf(stderr, "success!\n");
  } else {
    fprintf(stderr, "failed!\n");
  return 0;

/* PNG data */
static const unsigned char pngdata[93] = {137,80,78,71,13,10,26,10,0,0,

 Typical stack: 
(gdb) where
#0  gdPngReadData (png_ptr=0x501090, data=0x501570 "", length=5247120) at gd_png.c:83
#1  0x00002af9ef5ab192 in png_read_data (png_ptr=0x501090, data=0x501570 "", length=9) at pngrio.c:33
#2  0x00002af9ef5a1935 in png_crc_read (png_ptr=0x501090, buf=0x501570 "", length=9) at pngrutil.c:96
#3  0x00002af9ef5a1a17 in png_crc_finish (png_ptr=0x501090, skip=5248368) at pngrutil.c:116
#4  0x00002af9ef5a425a in png_handle_unknown (png_ptr=0x501090, info_ptr=0x505ae0, length=9)
    at pngrutil.c:2221
#5  0x00002af9ef5a9e0d in png_read_info (png_ptr=0x501090, info_ptr=0x505ae0) at pngread.c:530
#6  0x00002af9eeb2baf9 in gdImageCreateFromPngCtx (infile=0x501010) at gd_png.c:189
#7  0x00002af9eeb2b9b0 in gdImageCreateFromPngPtr (size=5247120, data=0x501570) at gd_png.c:111
#8  0x00000000004006df in main ()

 (if you ‘up’ to png_read_info() and try ‘finish’, you’ll see that this function never returns due to endless calls to gdPngReadData())

  22 Jun 2007; Mike Frysinger <> +gd-2.0.35.ebuild:
  Version bump.

No other bug reports, so I suppose there shouldn't be a problem to mark it stable...
