Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51001
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2003:081
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2003:081.

Zlib is a general-purpose, patent-free, lossless data compression
library that is used by many different programs.

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
within gzprintf.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date

Risk factor : High

CVSS Score:
7.5
