A libpng update is available for Fedora Core 1

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 1
Name : libpng
Version : 1.2.5
Release : 4
Summary : A library of functions for manipulating PNG image format
Description :
The libpng package contains a library of functions for creating and manipulating PNG (Portable Network Graphics) image format files. PNG is a bit-mapped graphics format similar to the GIF format. PNG was created to replace the GIF format, since GIF uses a patented data compression algorithm.

Libpng should be installed if you need to manipulate PNG format image files.

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.
