https://issues.rpath.com/browse/RPL-790
https://issues.rpath.com/browse/RPL-824

Description:
Previous versions of the libpng package are vulnerable to a denial
of service attack when an application that uses libpng attempts to
decode certain malformed PNG files.

4 December 2006 Update: previous versions of the doxygen package
include internal copies of the libpng and zlib libraries, and the
libpng library contained multiple vulnerabilities. The doxygen
package has been modified to use system shared libraries for
libpng and zlib, resolving these vulnerabilities for doxygen.
