John - Can you go ahead and close this bug and mark it a duplicate of bug 162680?
The CAN-2005-1849 issue has already been patched. See Bug #162680 comment 12.
Oh - if you were opening this bug for RedHat 7.3, I believe RH73 uses zlib
version 1.1.4, which is not vulnerable to CAN-2005-1849, AFAICT.
