Package        : zlib
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : remote DoS
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-1849

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.

This problem does not affect the old stable distribution (woody).

For the current stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed
in version 1.2.2-4.sarge.2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.2.3-1. 

We recommend that you upgrade your zlib package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
