libpng contains a flaw in the 'png_push_read_zTXt()' function that may allow a remote denial of service. The issue is due to an off-by-one error within the 'png_push_read_zTXt()' function in pngpread.c. With a specially crafted PNG file containing malformed zTXt chunks, a context-dependent attacker can cause the program to crash.
