Fedora Core 1 : libpng-1.2.5-4 (2004-185)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

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.
