Description

A vulnerability has been found and corrected in perl-Compress-Raw-Zlib :

Off-by-one error in the inflate function in Zlib.xs in Compress::Raw::Zlib Perl module before 2.017, as used in AMaViS, SpamAssassin, and possibly other products, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (hang or crash) via a crafted zlib compressed stream that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow, as exploited in the wild by Trojan.Downloader-71014 in June 2009 (CVE-2009-1391).

This update provides fixes for this vulnerability.

Update :

Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0 customers
