Description :

USN-148-1 and USN-151-1 fixed two security flaws in zlib, which could
be exploited to cause Denial of Service attacks or even arbitrary code
execution with malicious data streams.

package
however, some packages contain copies of the affected zlib
code, so they need to be upgraded as well.
