  Steve Grubb discovered that the Portable Network Graphics (PNG)
  library libpng [1] accesses memory that is out of bounds when creating
  an error message. Depending on machine architecture, bounds checking
  and other protective measures, this problem could cause the program
  to crash if a defective or intentionally prepared PNG image file is
  handled by libpng. This can even lead to a Denial of Service (DoS)
  situation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project
  assigned the id CAN-2004-0421 [2] to the problem.

  Please check whether you are affected by running "<prefix>/bin/rpm
  -q png" (and similarly for the other affected packages which have
  PNG included). If you have the "png" package (or one of the others)
  installed and its version is affected (see above), we recommend that
  you immediately upgrade it (see Solution) and its dependent packages
  (see above), if any, too [3][4].

  Select the updated source RPM appropriate for your OpenPKG release
  [5][6], fetch it from the OpenPKG FTP service [7][8] or a mirror
  location, verify its integrity [9], build a corresponding binary RPM
  from it [3] and update your OpenPKG installation by applying the
  binary RPM [4]. For the most recent release OpenPKG 2.0, perform the
  following operations to permanently fix the security problem (for
  other releases adjust accordingly).

  $ ftp
  ftp> bin
  ftp> cd release/2.0/UPD
  ftp> get png-1.2.5-2.0.1.src.rpm
  ftp> bye
  $ <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm -v --checksig png-1.2.5-2.0.1.src.rpm
  $ <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm --rebuild png-1.2.5-2.0.1.src.rpm
  $ su -
  # <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm -Fvh <prefix>/RPM/PKG/png-1.2.5-2.0.1.*.rpm

  Additionally, we recommend that you rebuild and reinstall
  all dependent packages (see above), if any, too [3][4].
