New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 9.4
SynopsisThe remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
DescriptionNew 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected libpng package.
