3. Description:

Bzip2 is a freely available, high-quality data compressor. It provides both
stand-alone compression and decompression utilities, as well as a shared
library for use with other programs.

A buffer over-read flaw was discovered in the bzip2 decompression routine.
This issue could cause an application linked against the libbz2 library to
crash when decompressing malformed archives. (CVE-2008-1372)

Users of bzip2 should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to resolve this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
