Debian Security Advisory DSA 797-1 security@debian.org

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : zsync
Vulnerability : DOS
Problem-Type : buffer overflow
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-1849, CAN-2005-2096

zsync, a file transfer program, includes a modified local copy of
the zlib library, and is vulnerable to certain bugs fixed previously
in the zlib package.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain the zsync
package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.3.3-1.sarge.1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.4.0-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your zsync package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
