Summary: A file compression utility.
Bzip2 is a freely available, patent-free, high quality data compressor.
Bzip2 compresses files to within 10 to 15 percent of the capabilities
of the best techniques available.  However, bzip2 has the added benefit
of being approximately two times faster at compression and six times
faster at decompression than those techniques.  Bzip2 is not the
fastest compression utility, but it does strike a balance between speed
and compression capability.

Install bzip2 if you need a compression utility.






* Tue Jan 09 2007 Bipin S <bipin at trustix dot org> 1.0.3-4tr
  - SECURITY Fix: Fixes a race condition which allows local users to
    modify permissions of arbitrary files via a hard link attack on a
    file while it is being decompressed, whose permissions are changed
    by bzip2 after the decompression is complete.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (
    has assigned the name CAN-2005-0953 to this issue.
* Fri Aug 05 2005 Syed Shabir Zakiullah <syedshabir at comodo dot com> 1.0.3-3tr
  - SECURITY Fix: Command injection vulnerability in the "bzgrep"
  - bzgrep did not handle shell metacharacters like '|' and '&' properly
    when they occurred in input file names. This could be exploited to
    execute arbitrary commands with user privileges if bzgrep was run in
    an untrusted directory with specially crafted file names.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (
    has assigned the name CAN-2005-0758 to this issue.
