Title: Zlib Compression Library Decompression Denial of Service
Description: The Zlib compression library is an open source library
designed for fast compression and decompression of data. It is
susceptible to a denial of service vulnerability. This issue is due to
a failure of the library to properly handle unexpected input to its
decompression routines. Various operating systems using the Zlib
library are reported to be affected.

John - Can you go ahead and close this bug and mark it a duplicate of bug 162680?
The CAN-2005-1849 issue has already been patched.  See Bug #162680 comment 12.

Oh - if you were opening this bug for RedHat 7.3, I believe RH73 uses zlib
version 1.1.4, which is not vulnerable to CAN-2005-1849, AFAICT.
