A vulnerability found in the error handling mechanisms of the decompression functions in the zlib compression library
You can eliminate it by upgrading zlib to 1.2.2 from http://www.zlib.net.
Make sure to perform this update on each Unix box of the H-Sphere cluster.
To compile it from source:
- Log in as root and download the source:
- Unpack the archive:
tar -zxf zlib-1.2.2.tar.gz
- Enter the unpacked directory:
- Configure and install the package:
./configure --prefix=/usr --shared && make && make install
