    Package        : sash
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
    Problem-Type   : local(remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2005-1849 CVE-2005-2096
    Debian Bug     : 318069
    Markus Oberhumer discovered a flaw in the way zlib, a library used for
    file compression and decompression, handles invalid input. This flaw can
    cause programs which use zlib to crash when opening an invalid file.
    A further error in the way zlib handles the inflation of certain
    compressed files can cause a program which uses zlib to crash when opening
    an invalid file.
    sash, the stand-alone shell, links statically against zlib, and was
    thus affected by these problems.
    The old stable distribution (woody) isn't affected by these problems.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.7-5sarge1.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.7-6.
    We recommend that you upgrade your sash package.
