CVE-2010-0001 gzip: (64 bit) Integer underflow by decompressing LZW
An integer underflow flaw, leading to an array index error, was found
in the way gzip expanded archive files compressed with the
Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) compression algorithm. If a victim expanded a
specially crafted archive, it could cause gzip to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running gzip. This flaw only affects 64-bit systems. (CVE-2010-0001)
