Mandriva Advisories MDKSA-2006:070 : sash


Updated openvpn packages fix vulnerability

April 10th, 2006


Tavis Ormandy of the Gentoo Security Project discovered a vulnerability in zlib where a certain data stream would cause zlib to corrupt a data structure, resulting in the linked application to dump core (CVE-2005-2096). Markus Oberhumber discovered additional ways that a specially-crafted compressed stream could trigger an overflow.An attacker could create such a stream that would cause a linked application to crash if opened by a user (CVE-2005-1849). Both of these issues have previously been fixed in zlib, but sash links statically against zlib and is thus also affected by these issues.New sash packages are available that link against the updated zlib packages.



The released versions of Mandriva GNU/Linux affected are:

  • CS3.0
  • MNF2.0
  • 10.2
  • 2006.0
