CAN-2005-1849 zlib buffer overflows (CAN-2005-2096)
Last modified: 2008-01-29 06:02:57 EST
perl-Compress-Zlib contains an internal version of the zlib source. A number of
buffer overflow issues have been recently fixed in zlib.
See bug 163037 and bug 162391 for more information.
Ideally, we should build perl-Compress-Zlib to use the system zlib to avoid
having to rebuild it in the future.
It is built against the system zlib unless Something Is Wrong...

Yes, you are right. I hadn't checked this myself. mjc ran a tool over FC4 and
this one popped up.
