Package : ncompress
Vulnerability : integer underflow
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id : CVE-2010-0001

Aki Helin discovered an integer underflow in ncompress, the original
Lempel-Ziv compress/uncompress programs.
This could lead to the execution of arbitrary code when trying to decompress
a crafted LZW compressed gzip archive.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 4.2.4.2-1+lenny1.

For the testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distribution, this
problem has been fixed in version 4.2.4.3-1.


We recommend that you upgrade your ncompress package.
