For general information regarding FreeBSD Security Advisories,
including descriptions of the fields above, security branches, and the
following sections, please visit <URL:http://security.FreeBSD.org/>.

I.   Background

gzip is a file compression utility.

II.  Problem Description

Multiple programming errors have been found in gzip which can be
triggered when gzip is decompressing files.  These errors include
insufficient bounds checks in buffer use, a NULL pointer dereference,
and a potential infinite loop.

III. Impact

The insufficient bounds checks in buffer use can cause gzip to crash,
and may permit the execution of arbitrary code.  The NULL pointer
deference can cause gzip to crash.  The infinite loop can cause a
Denial-of-Service situation where gzip uses all available CPU time.

IV.  Workaround

No workaround is available.

V.   Solution

Perform one of the following:

1) Upgrade your vulnerable system to 4-STABLE, 5-STABLE, or 6-STABLE,
or to the RELENG_6_1, RELENG_6_0, RELENG_5_5, RELENG_5_4, RELENG_5_3,
or RELENG_4_11 security branch dated after the correction date.

2) To patch your present system:

The following patches have been verified to apply to FreeBSD 4.11, 5.3,
5.4, 5.5, 6.0, and 6.1 systems.

a) Download the relevant patch from the location below, and verify the
detached PGP signature using your PGP utility.

# fetch http://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-06:21/gzip.patch
# fetch http://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-06:21/gzip.patch.asc

b) Execute the following commands as root:

# cd /usr/src
# patch < /path/to/patch
# cd /usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/gzip
# make obj && make depend && make && make install

corrected in FreeBSD.
