Debian Security Advisory DSA 797-2 security@debian.org

September 28th, 2005 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

There was a build error for the sarge i386 proftpd packages released in
DSA 797-1. A new build, zsync_0.3.3-1.sarge.1.2, has been prepared to
correct this error. The packages for other architectures are unaffected.

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

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update

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