The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
A previous zlib update (MDKSA-2005:112; CVE-2005-2096) fixed an
overflow flaw in the zlib program. While that update did indeed fix
the reported overflow issue, Markus Oberhumber discovered additional
ways that a specially crafted compressed stream could trigger an
overflow. An attacker could create such a stream that would cause a
linked application to crash if opened by a user.
The updated packages are provided to protect against this flaw. The
Corporate Server 2.1 product is not affected by this vulnerability.
Update the affected zlib1 and / or zlib1-devel packages.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
