As you already noticed: Because it uses another version of libpng.

I think you have three possibilities:

* The image is not generated dynamically but stored in a database. Simply
  update the image with the fixed one.
* The image is generated dynamically. Probably your server uses a version of
  libpng which is really old... Consider updating.
* File a bug report for libpng upstream.
