Synopsis :

The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.

Description :

New libpng packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0,
and -current to fix security issues. These issues could cause program
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.
