CAN-2003-0107 zlib buffer overflow
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:04:29 EST
The function gzprintf within zlib, when called with a string longer than
Z_PRINTF_BUFZISE (= 4096 bytes), can overflow without giving a warning.
zlib-1.1.4 and earlier exhibit this behavior. There are no known exploits
of the gzprintf overrun, and only a few programs, including rpm2html
and gimp-print, are known to use the gzprintf function.
The problem has been fixed by checking the length of the output string
This is CAN-2003-0107 and will be RHSA-2003:081
Needinfo so I don't have to stare at the duplicate bug.
