Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.66782
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-889-1 (gzip)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-889-1 (gzip)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to gzip
announced via advisory USN-889-1.

Details follow:

It was discovered that gzip incorrectly handled certain malformed
compressed files. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a
specially crafted gzip file, an attacker could cause gzip to crash or
possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking
the program. (CVE-2009-2624)

Aki Helin discovered that gzip incorrectly handled certain malformed
files compressed with the Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) algorithm. If a user or
automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted gzip file,
an attacker could cause gzip to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2010-0001)

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
gzip 1.3.5-12ubuntu0.3

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
gzip 1.3.12-3.2ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 8.10:
gzip 1.3.12-6ubuntu2.8.10.1

Ubuntu 9.04:
gzip 1.3.12-6ubuntu2.9.04.1

Ubuntu 9.10:
gzip 1.3.12-8ubuntu1.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
