Fedora Core 1 2004-105: libpng Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the libpng package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2004-105 (libpng).

The libpng package contains a library of functions for creating and
manipulating PNG (Portable Network Graphics) image format files. PNG
is a bit-mapped graphics format similar to the GIF format. PNG was
created to replace the GIF format, since GIF uses a patented data
compression algorithm.

Libpng should be installed if you need to manipulate PNG format image
