    Aki Helin discovered an integer underflow in ncompress, the original
    Lempel-Ziv compress/uncompress programs.
    This could lead to the execution of arbitrary code when trying to decompress
    a crafted LZW compressed gzip archive.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.2.4.2-1+lenny1.
    
    For the testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distribution, this
    problem has been fixed in version 4.2.4.3-1.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ncompress package.
