png_create_info_struct in png.c in libpng 1.6.36 has a memory leak, as demonstrated by pngcp. 

Comment 1 Yury German Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2019-04-27 06:39:33 UTC
Maintainers please advise if this is fixed in the current stabilization: media-libs/libpng-1.6.37
Comment 2 Thomas Deutschmann gentoo-dev 2019-04-27 11:59:52 UTC
This is an error in media-gfx/pngtools, not in media-libs/libpng.
Comment 3 Aaron Bauman Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2021-01-28 00:54:37 UTC
Disputed upstream and minor impact if any as noted by upstream devs.
