https://issues.rpath.com/browse/RPL-615

Description:
Previous versions of the gzip package contain multiple vulnerabilities
that enable user-complicit unauthorized access when a user attempts to
gunzip intentionally malformed gzip files. Some network services will
automatically run the gunzip program in some contexts, which may then
enable direct unauthorized access to the user account that provides
the network service.
