A segmentation fault occurs when the mentioned image is opened in x86 Ubuntu 10.04 using either the default version of Firefox or the current nightly build. The error occurs in gfxASurface::SurfaceDestroyFunc. 

The backtrace from the nightly build is:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x00d2a99b in gfxASurface::SurfaceDestroyFunc(void*) () from ./
(gdb) bt
#0  0x00d2a99b in gfxASurface::SurfaceDestroyFunc(void*) () from ./

#3  0x00d2add3 in gfxASurface::Release() () from ./
#4  0x00000000 in ?? ()

The kinda worrysome looking 0 return address does not show up in the backtrace for default Firefox.

Not tested in 64-bit builds or other platforms yet.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
$ firefox
Actual Results:  
$ firefox

Here's the backtrace using a DEBUG build.  Whatever's being handed to gfxASurface::SurfaceDestroyFunc is bogus and we're crashing when trying to delete it.

Comment 4 Aki Helin 2010-06-07 11:20:55 PDT
The image at causes a similar crash. Slightly different trace, but I'm guessing it's the same issue.
Comment 5 Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (still a bit busy) 2010-06-07 11:30:09 PDT
For what it's worth, my local debug builds I see crashes in various other places too (DOM code, imgFrame::EstimateMemoryUsed with |this| being jemalloc freed markers), plus assertions like so:

###!!! ASSERTION: Don't ask for a frame > 0 if we're not animated!: 'framenum == 0', file ../../../../mozilla/modules/libpr0n/src/imgContainer.cpp, line 373

When those assertions fire, framenum in imgContainer::GetImgFrame is 0xff00fffe, because numFrames is 0xff00ffff in nsPNGDecoder::EndImageFrame.

And that's because mImage.mRawPtr->mFrames.Length() is 0xff00ffff at that point (why, I have no idea).
Comment 6 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-07 11:40:03 PDT
According to "pngcrush -n -v spark.png" it has "Extra compressed data".  This causes libpng-1.4 to issue two "benign errors".  Such errors can be handled as warnings or (by default) as errors.  Mozilla allows libpng to handle them by default.

@aki, are you using the embedded libpng or the system libpng on Ubuntu?
I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 with Firefox 3.6.3 as supplied by Ubuntu, and am not seeing a crash; I see a 2x2 green image.  Same with spark-2.png except it't 1x1.

Comment 17 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-15 17:52:26 PDT
Good guess.  I'm here but busy with something else.  I am suspecting something is wrong with the png_benign_error() handling, but comment #10 says the system libpng-1.2 is also acting up.  Note that if MOZ_PNG_stuff is in the traceback then it is the embedded libpng, even if you requested system libpng via configure (it might have fallen back on the embedded library to get the APNG support).  If both embedded and system libpng exhibit the bug, then look for a problem in libpr0n/decoders/png.
Comment 18 Jeff Muizelaar [:jrmuizel] 2010-06-15 18:23:51 PDT
Looks like our row_callback is being called with row_num == mFrameRect.height (2) which causes us to write beyond the image data buffer. I'm not yet sure why libpng calls us with row_num == 2.
Comment 19 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-15 20:01:20 PDT
Confirmed that the bug is within libpng.  The rpng2-x demo program (progressive reading) provided with libpng in contrib/gregbook segfaults when trying to read spark.png.
Comment 20 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-15 20:27:23 PDT
Libpng's example.c contains this check at the
beginning of the row_callback:

/* Check if row_num is in bounds. */
   if ((row_num >= 0) && (row_num < height))

That check is omitted from libpng's contrib/gregbook/readpng2.c
and also from libpr0n's decoders/png/nsPNGDecoder.cpp, which
was modeled after the gregbook code.
Comment 21 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-15 20:38:32 PDT
rpng2-x does *not* crash after I added the check if row_num is in bounds.

I'll put together a patch to nsPNGDecoder.cpp

I don't have access to the TryServer anymore (rules seem to have changed)
so someone else will have to run that.

> I don't have access to the TryServer anymore (rules seem to have changed)

The only rule changes we've made recently made the rules less restrictive, so if you had access before and lost it, you should file a bug to sort that out:
Comment 23 Jeff Muizelaar [:jrmuizel] 2010-06-15 21:00:20 PDT
Shouldn't the caller of row_callback ensure that row_num is in bounds? row_num >= height seems to be handle pretty inconsistently by users of libpng.

These users don't seem to check:

These users check but assume or assert that the condition won't happen:

These users do the check:
Comment 24 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-15 21:12:19 PDT
I don't know why the check is in libpng/example.c but someone must
have experienced a problem or realized that a problem was possible.

A lot of applications are probably built with the gregbook code,
as is libpr0n/decoders/nsPNGDecoder.cpp, and would be vulnerable

The test was added to libpng/example.c in libpng-1.2.1beta01, in
October 2001.
Comment 25 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-15 21:30:49 PDT
The revised code for example.c, with the check for row_num out of
bounds, was contributed by "Capt. Taura M." on 10 September 2001.
It was meant to clarify the example; there is no mention of anything
crashing, but there was a problem with reading interlaced PNGs
in The GIMP which may have been related.

v00: check for out-of-bounds row_num in libpr0n (checked in)
Comment 27 Aki Helin 2010-06-16 05:14:52 PDT
I originally also opened a Chromium issue for this case, and can tell there about your findings. What about other the affected programs? Will libpng later check row_num before calling the callback, or should the users check the validity? If the latter is the way to go, I could give the files to some friends at CERT-FI for checking if other projects or vendors are affected.
Comment 28 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-16 05:30:47 PDT
I have notified the libpng developers.  As a minimum we will change the example code in contrib/gregbook/readpng2.c upon which a lot of applications seem to be based.  I assume that we will fix libpng to check internally as well, if we can.

It looks as though we simply could insert a check for row_num >= png_ptr->height
at the entry to png_push_have_row() in pngpread.c

Interestingly, my Firefox 3.6.3 on Ubuntu doesn't crash when I look at
aki's page full of bad PNGs.  However, later on when I try to close the
tab, Firefox is blown away.  Reopening Firefox gives the "well, this is
embarassing" window.  "Restore" seems to work.

I experienced the "well this is embarassing" on Windows XP, Firefox 3.7a3pre, when I powered up my computer and reopened Firefox this morning after viewing one of aki's images yesterday and shutting down the computer yesterday.  So I'm changing it from X86/Linux to All/All.

Comment 33 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-16 06:21:18 PDT
Please test the v01 patch as well.  v01 fixes the embedded libpng while v00 (still needed) makes libpr0n catch the problem when the system libpng is used.  We should probably apply both.
Comment 34 Jeff Muizelaar [:jrmuizel] 2010-06-16 06:27:52 PDT
I've pushed v00 to try. I'm not thrilled about pushing to try though because it can potentially reveal the problem, so I'm holding off pushing v01 and the combination. I think we can probably land v00 everywhere and then deal with v01 after we've done a release.
Comment 35 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-16 06:52:04 PDT
That's OK; v00 takes care of both embedded and system.  The combo will be redundant when using the embedded libpng, so we might want to #ifdef out
the test in libpr0n when using the embedded libpng.  But as you say, that can

Don't know.  The libpng group is checking into it.  The
v00 and v01 patches fix the symptoms but don't cure the
underlying problem.  Hopefully we will come up with an
explanation and a real fix.  If anyone here has an idea,
feel free to post it here, send it to me, or better yet
(after this bug's security flag is cleared!),
join the png-mng-implement mailing list at sourceforge
and post it there.
Comment 39 Daniel Veditz [:dveditz] 2010-06-17 09:40:48 PDT
Let's try to get this into the branch builds ASAP since the problem is fairly obvious from the patch. Please hold off on the trunk landing for a bit and we'll try to land everywhere next week. 

Or will our landing "out" the problem for every libpng using-system everywhere, not just Mozilla clients? If so we need to coordinate w/Glenn
Comment 40 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-17 14:51:21 PDT
It will reveal the problem that exists in every libpng-using system that does progressive reading (i.e., using callbacks) and that follows the libpng/gregbook/readpng2.c example and not the libpng/example.c.  I guess CERT should be notified right away.  CERT will probably want 3 weeks before going public with the bug.

The Chromium team would really like to apply the equivalent of v00 asap with some non-suspicious message until the official libpng fix is out. Any chance syncing this with Mozilla?

dveditz, can you go ahead and assign a CVE for this issue?
Comment 50 Aki Helin 2010-06-20 06:48:39 PDT
If you want to try a patched version against more similar data before

mkdir -p $HOME/pngtest/{samples,fuzzed}
cd $HOME/pngtest
curl | tar -C samples -zxvf -
curl | gzip -d | gcc -O2 -o
radamsa -x c -
./radamsa -e surfy -n 1000 -o fuzzed/%f-%i.png samples/*.png

and then test the files coming to fuzzed/*.png, and remove when done to get
more. For example $ for file in fuzzed/*.png; do echo "<img src=$file>"; done >
all.html; firefox all.html. Leaving out the "-e surfy" gives more varied
changes, but that module is the one usually triggering this issue.

v04: check for out-of-bounds row_num in libpng

I inadvertently removed some of the APNG support via the v03 patch.
Comment 52 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-21 08:01:18 PDT
I've submitted a report to CERT:

An extra row of data in the IDAT chunk of a
png file can cause libpng applications that
use the progressive reader (with a row callback
function) to crash, if the row callback function
does not check for an out-of-bounds row number.

A workaround is to check for row_num greater
than or equal to the image height, at the
beginning of the user-supplied row callback

All versions of libpng are vulnerable.

Libpng versions 1.2.44 and 1.4.3 will be
released shortly.  Libpng-1.0.x is no longer
supported and will not be updated.

A patch for Mozilla/firefox is being tested.

We should take it anyway because people do build with system libpng.

v04: check for out-of-bounds row_num in libpng

is this ready for a review? Or does it not need one because it's an official upstream patch?
Comment 58 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-21 10:47:23 PDT
It's not yet an official upstream patch.  I'm hoping to see some test
results both here and on png-mng-implement at
but so far have only seen results from myself and one other person.
#:-(   ---  but the results so far are sucessful #:-)

Let me know exactly when you plan to land a patched Firefox release;
we will no doubt be able to coordinate the release of libpng-1.4.3
at the same time, along with 1.2.44 (legacy) and 1.5.0beta29 (devel).
Comment 59 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-21 11:00:52 PDT
I know about the typos in the comments but those won't affect testing.
Comment 60 Daniel Veditz [:dveditz] 2010-06-23 10:38:18 PDT
Neither Chrome 5 nor Safari 5 on mac crashed for me on these testcases.
IE 8 on Windows did not crash
Chrome 5 on windows did crash, but Aki indicated they're ready to go with a patch too.

I think we need to land v00 everywhere now (so it makes and upgrade libpng later.

v00: check for out-of-bounds row_num in libpr0n (checked in)

Approved for and, a=dveditz for release-drivers

Please land with an innocuous comment, that if possible keeps the attention on our own code and away from libpng.
Comment 62 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-23 11:16:22 PDT
I think libpng-1.4.3 is ready to go with v04 (with typos fixed) whenever you land v00.  libpng-1.4.3 will also fix a memory leak with the sCAL chunk, that does not affect you since libimg never processes sCAL.
Comment 63 Aki Helin 2010-06-23 11:19:34 PDT
I just posted to Chromium that you will apply the workaround and libpng is ready for release.
Comment 64 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-23 11:24:05 PDT
By the way, I have not gotten a reply from CERT yet (I have learned not to expect a timely reply from them).  Does anyone here know if they are aware of this bug?
Comment 65 Aki Helin 2010-06-23 11:47:06 PDT
I gave the CVE number and a rough description informally to our contact at CERT-FI, so at least they do. Let me know if they should help with an advisory etc.

Mozilla also has contacts with vendor-sec if you want to go that route.

Avoids infinite loop while decoding a certain PNG file.
This is the libpng-1.4.3rc03 version.

Uh, what? Firefox 3.6.6 doesn't include the patch for this. Unless they're using system libpng and have already patched it with the newer release, you shouldn't see this as fixed.
Comment 77 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-30 11:46:19 PDT
I guess it's possible that I'm using a patched libpng.  All I know is that I received Firefox 3.6.6 from Ubuntu, and didn't see a crash.  I'll check further when I get home this evening.

That is linked to libpng.1.2.42, not patched.

So I don't know why I don't see the crash now.
Comment 79 Aki Helin 2010-06-30 13:03:29 PDT
My just now patched Ubuntu is using libpng 1.2.42-1ubuntu2. The bundled Firefox 3.6.6 crashes on spark.png.
Comment 80 Daniel Veditz [:dveditz] 2010-06-30 13:12:40 PDT
Glenn: your system is magic. We have not released a fix for this yet. What may not be obvious from comments alone is that "fixed in" became "fixed in" when the inserted plugin-hang-fix release took the name (but the "status1.9.2" field was updated to reflect the correct state).
Comment 81 Aki Helin 2010-06-30 13:40:17 PDT
Correction, x86 crashes on load, whereas on x86_64 Firefox seems to work after opening the images, but crashes if closed or the page is loaded a few times, apparently whenever something accesses whatever was corrupted next to the broken image.
Comment 82 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-06-30 16:55:31 PDT
OK, I opened spark.png ten times with no problem but on the 11th, in a new tab,  it crashed.

Magic, indeed.    #:-(

> OK, I opened spark.png ten times

I should not have done that.  The end result was that I've completely lost access to the ubuntu machine, except via a "generic-recovery" reboot to a CLI, or via CTRL-ALT-F1.  I can't get it to give me a login prompt (just a purple screen-of-death with highlights and no login dialog box).  Possibly related is that the crash happened while the update manager was trying to update sudo and some other kernel stuff, but I'm suspecting spark.png.
Comment 84 Glenn Randers-Pehrson 2010-07-05 09:01:15 PDT
A pointer to spark.png has been posted to the chromium bug tracker and to the png-mng-implement mailing list.  So I suppose the security flag can be cleared here.
Comment 85 Aki Helin 2010-07-05 12:00:09 PDT
In case it is of any help, I removed the images to which they linked a while ago. I think only this thread has a copy of the original file.

I have a copy but it is on my old Ubuntu disk. I'm back in business now;
put in a new disc and did a fresh install of Ubuntu Lucid on it.  I can mount the old disc and read the files on it, but never succeeded in getting the "half-configured" gdm and gedit running again, evidently due to the nasty crash caused by this bug.

Note that I opened a separate bug #564792 about upgrading to libpng-1.4.3 on the trunk.  For other branches, applying the v05 patch from here should be sufficient.

Verified for 1.9.2 with Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20100713 Firefox/3.6.7 using the attached image. It crashes cleanly.

Verified crashing in and fixed in with Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20100701 Firefox/3.5.11 as well.
