Package name sash
Date April 10th, 2006
Advisory ID MDKSA-2006:070
Affected versions CS3.0, MNF2.0, 10.2, 2006.0
Synopsis Updated sash packages fix vulnerability

Problem Description

Tavis Ormandy of the Gentoo Security Project discovered a vulnerability
in zlib where a certain data stream would cause zlib to corrupt a data
structure, resulting in the linked application to dump core

Markus Oberhumber discovered additional ways that a specially-crafted
compressed stream could trigger an overflow. An attacker could create
such a stream that would cause a linked application to crash if opened
by a user (CVE-2005-1849).

Both of these issues have previously been fixed in zlib, but sash links
statically against zlib and is thus also affected by these issues. New
sash packages are available that link against the updated zlib packages.
