Debian Security Advisory DSA 1026-1                                   Moritz Muehlenhoff

Package        : sash
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
Problem-Type   : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-1849 CVE-2005-2096
Debian Bug     : 318069

Markus Oberhumer discovered a flaw in the way zlib, a library used for
file compression and decompression, handles invalid input. This flaw can
cause programs which use zlib to crash when opening an invalid file.
A further error in the way zlib handles the inflation of certain
compressed files can cause a program which uses zlib to crash when opening
an invalid file.

sash, the stand-alone shell, links statically against zlib, and was
thus affected by these problems.

The old stable distribution (woody) isn't affected by these problems.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.7-5sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.7-6.

We recommend that you upgrade your sash 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.
