Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:070
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : sash
Date : April 10, 2006
Affected: 10.2, 2006.0, Corporate 3.0, Multi Network Firewall 2.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Tavis Ormandy of the Gentoo Security Project discovered a vulnerability
in zlib where a certain data stream would cause zlib to corrupt a data
structure, resulting in the linked application to dump core
(CVE-2005-2096).

Markus Oberhumber discovered additional ways that a specially-crafted
compressed stream could trigger an overflow. An attacker could create
such a stream that would cause a linked application to crash if opened
by a user (CVE-2005-1849).

Both of these issues have previously been fixed in zlib, but sash links
statically against zlib and is thus also affected by these issues. New
sash packages are available that link against the updated zlib packages.
