(Compress::Zlib: Buffer overflow)
Compress::Zlib 1.34 contains a local vulnerable version of zlib,
which may lead to a buffer overflow.
By creating a specially crafted compressed data stream, attackers
can overwrite data structures for applications that use Compress::Zlib,
resulting in a Denial of Service and potentially arbitrary code
There is no known workaround at this time.

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=perl-core/Compress-Zlib-1.35'
