GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 200303-25
- - ---------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE : zlib
SUMMARY : buffer overrun
DATE : 2003-03-28 10:50 UTC
EXPLOIT : remote
VERSIONS AFFECTED : <1.1.4-r1
FIXED VERSION : >=1.1.4-r1
CVE : CAN-2003-0107

- - ---------------------------------------------------------------------

- From advisory:
"zlib contains a function called gzprintf(). This is similar in
behaviour to fprintf() except that by default, this function will
smash the stack if called with arguments that expand to more than
Z_PRINTF_BUFSIZE (=4096 by default) bytes."

Read the full advisory at
http://www.securityfocus.com/archive/1/312869/2003-02-18/2003-02-24/0

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
sys-libs/zlib upgrade to zlib-1.1.4-r1 as follows:

emerge sync
emerge zlib
emerge clean
