Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:140
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : ncompress
Date : August 9, 2006
Affected: 2006.0, Corporate 3.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Tavis Ormandy, of the Google Security Team, discovered that ncompress,
when uncompressing data, performed no bounds checking, which could
allow a specially crafted datastream to underflow a .bss buffer with
attacker controlled data.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
