Description:
A previous ZLib [1] update for CAN-2005-2096 fixed a Denial of Service
(DoS) flaw that could allow a carefully crafted compressed stream to
crash an application. While the original patch corrected the reported
overflow, Markus Oberhumer discovered additional ways a stream could
trigger an overflow. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE)
project assigned the id CAN-2005-1849 [2] to the problem.

Please check whether you are affected by running "<prefix>/bin/openpkg
rpm -q zlib". If you have the "zlib" package installed and its version
is affected (see above), we recommend that you immediately upgrade it
(see Solution) and its dependent packages (see above), too [3][4].

Solution:
Select the updated source RPM appropriate for your OpenPKG release
[5][6], fetch it from the OpenPKG FTP service [7][8] or a mirror
location, verify its integrity [9], build a corresponding binary RPM
from it [3] and update your OpenPKG installation by applying the
binary RPM [4]. For the most recent release OpenPKG 2.4, perform the
following operations to permanently fix the security problem (for
other releases adjust accordingly).

$ ftp ftp.openpkg.org
ftp> bin
ftp> cd release/2.4/UPD
ftp> get zlib-1.2.2-2.4.2.src.rpm
ftp> bye
$ <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm -v --checksig zlib-1.2.2-2.4.2.src.rpm
$ <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm --rebuild zlib-1.2.2-2.4.2.src.rpm
$ su -
# <prefix>/bin/openpkg rpm -Fvh <prefix>/RPM/PKG/zlib-1.2.2-2.4.2.*.rpm

Additionally, we recommend that you rebuild and reinstall
all dependent packages (see above), if any, too [3][4].
