The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
New libpng packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0,

crashes, or possibly allow arbitrary code embedded in a malicious PNG
image to execute. The PNG library is widely used within the system, so
all sites should upgrade to the new libpng package.
