Run the following program on the following input:

package main

import (

func main() {
    data := "\x89PNG\r\n\x1a\n\x00\x00\x00\rIHDR\x00\x00\x00\x00" +
        "\x04\x00\x00\x00\x04\x00\x00\x00\x00\x86\xfc\x9f\xc30000IDA" +

    img, err := png.Decode(bytes.NewReader([]byte(data)))
    if err != nil {
    var w bytes.Buffer
    err = png.Encode(&w, img)
    if err != nil {

It crashes as:

panic: runtime error: index out of range
