Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:124: zlib

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the zlib package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:124 (zlib).

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. A possible hacker 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.
