Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2010:019  http://www.mandriva.com/security/
Package : gzip Date : January 20, 2010 Affected: Corporate 4.0

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been found and corrected in gzip:  

 An integer underflow leading to array index error was found in the  way gzip used to decompress files / archives, compressed with the  Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) compression algorithm. A remote attacker could  provide a specially-crafted LZW compressed gzip archive, which once  decompressed by a local, unsuspecting user would lead to gzip crash,  or, potentially to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of  the user running gzip (CVE-2010-0001).  

 The updated packages have been patched to correct thies issue.
