The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
There are two problems with the gzip archiving program; the first is a
crash when an input file name is over 1020 characters, and the second
is a buffer overflow that could be exploited if gzip is run on a
server such as an FTP server. The patch applied is from the gzip
developers and the problems have been fixed in the latest beta.
