Debian Updated package.

Debian Security Advisory DSA 797-2                     security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                              Michael Stone
September 28th, 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.

There was a build error for the sarge i386 proftpd packages released in
DSA 797-1. A new build, zsync_0.3.3-1.sarge.1.2, has been prepared to
correct this error. The packages for other architectures are unaffected.

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.


Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 alias sarge
- --------------------------------

  Intel IA-32 architecture:

    http://security.debian.org/pool/updates/main/z/zsync/zsync_0.3.3-1.sarge.1.2_i386.deb
      Size/MD5 checksum:    94516 bb4ff605c6e3b94f23dd0986ca55e450

  These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
  its next update.
