Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Fedora deltarpm prior to the current build ships with a bundled copy of zlib. This version of zlib has a known vulnerability with CVE identifier: CAN-2005-1849 This build of deltarpm patches the program to use the system zlib (which was fixed when the vulnerability was first discovered) instead of the bundled copy.

Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-10262
2009-10-06 08:54:43
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : deltarpm
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 3.4
Release     : 18.fc11
URL         : http://www.novell.com/products/linuxpackages/professional/deltarpm.html
Summary     : Create deltas between rpms
Description :
A deltarpm contains the difference between an old
and a new version of a rpm, which makes it possible
to recreate the new rpm from the deltarpm and the old
one. You don't have to have a copy of the old rpm,
deltarpms can also work with installed rpms.

Update Information:

deltarpm prior to the current build ships with a bundled copy of zlib. This
version of zlib has a known vulnerability with CVE identifier: CAN-2005-1849
This build of deltarpm patches the program to use the system zlib (which was
fixed when the vulnerability was first discovered) instead of the bundled copy.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Mon Oct  5 2009 Jonathan Dieter  - 3.4-18
- Re-split off drpmsync from main package
* Wed Sep 30 2009 Toshio Kuratomi  - 3.4-17
- Work around cvs tag problem
* Wed Sep 30 2009 Toshio Kuratomi  - 3.4-16
- Build against the system zlib, not the bundled library.  This remedies the
  fact that the included zlib is affected by CAN-2005-1849.
- Fix cfile_detect_rsync() to detect rsync even if we don't have a zlib capable
  of making rsync-friendly compressed files.
