    Debian-specific: no
    In addition to the advisory DSA 140-1 the packages below fix another
    potential buffer overflow.  The PNG libraries implement a safety
    margin which is also included in a newer upstream release.  Thanks to
    Glenn Randers-Pehrson for informing us.
    This problem has been fixed in version 1.0.12-3.woody.2 of libpng and
    version 1.2.1-1.1.woody.2 of libpng3 for the current stable
    distribution (woody).
    We recommend that you upgrade your libpng packages.
