A libpng10 update for Fedora Core 1 has been released

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 1
Name : libpng10
Version : 1.0.15
Release : 4
Summary : Old version of libpng, needed to run old binaries.
Description :
The libpng10 package contains an old version of libpng, a library of functions for creating and manipulating PNG (Portable Network Graphics) image format files.

This package is needed if you want to run binaries that were linked dynamically with libpng 1.0.x.

Update Information:

During an audit of Red Hat Linux updates, the Fedora Legacy team found a security issue in libpng that had not been fixed in Fedora Core. An attacker could carefully craft a PNG file in such a way that it would cause an application linked to libpng to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code when opened by a victim.
