    Package        : zsync
    Vulnerability  : DOS
    Problem-Type   : buffer overflow
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-1849, CAN-2005-2096
    
    zsync, a file transfer program, includes a modified local copy of
    the zlib library, and is vulnerable to certain bugs fixed previously
    in the zlib package.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain the zsync
    package.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.3.3-1.sarge.1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.4.0-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your zsync package.
