Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake 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).
 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDKSA-2006:070
 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
 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.
