    Yahoo issued a security patch to fix a potential vulnerability in its latest instant messaging software, the company said Friday.

    The patch, first posted to the Web late Thursday, repairs a security hole stemming from Yahoo Messenger's use of the portable network graphics--or PNG--format, an open-source code the program uses to display certain images, such as buddy list avatars.
