Debian Security Advisory DSA 797-1                     security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                              Michael Stone
September 1st, 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.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain the zsync
package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.3.3-1.sarge.1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.4.0-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your zsync package.


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

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

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

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

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