Debian Security Advisory DSA 797-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Michael Stone September 1st, 2005 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


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.
