Zlib double-free - Mandrake Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2002:022

                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           zlib
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2002:022
Date:                   March 12th, 2002
Affected versions:      7.1, 7.2, 8.0, 8.1, Corporate Server 1.0.1,
                        Single Network Firewall 7.2
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 Matthias Clasen found a security issue in zlib that, when provided with
 certain input, causes zlib to free an area of memory twice.  This
 "double free" bug can be used to crash any programs that take untrusted
 compressed input, such as web browsers, email clients, image viewing
 software, etc.  This vulnerability can be used to perform Denial of
 Service attacks and, quite possibly, the execution of arbitrary code on
 the affected system.

 MandrakeSoft has published two advisories concerning this incident:

   MDKSA-2002:022 - zlib
   MDKSA-2002:023 - packages containing zlib

 The second advisory contains additional packages that bring their own
 copies of the zlib source, and as such need to be fixed and rebuilt.
 Updating the zlib library is sufficient to protect those programs that
 use the system zlib, but the packages as noted in MDKSA-2002:023 will
 need to be updated for those packages that do not use the system zlib.
