    Debian Bug     : 921355
    
    A use-after-free vulnerability was discovered in the png_image_free()
    function in the libpng PNG library, which could lead to denial of
    service or potentially the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed
    image is processed.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
