  - SECURITY Fix: Tavis Ormandy, Google Security Team,  has reported some
    vulnerabilities in gzip, which can be exploited by malicious people
    to cause a DoS and potentially compromise a vulnerable system.
  - Fix null pointer dereference that may lead to denial of service if
    gzip is used in an automated manner.
  - A boundary error within the "make_table()" function in unlzh.c can be
    used to modify certain stack data. This can be exploited to cause a DoS
    and potentially allows to execute arbitrary code.
  - A buffer underflow exists within the "build_tree()" function in
    unpack.c, which can be exploited to cause a DoS and potentially allows
    to execute arbitrary code.
  - A buffer overflow within the "make_table()" function of gzip's LZH
    support can be exploited to cause a DoS and potentially to compromise
    a vulnerable system by e.g. tricking a user or automated system into
    unpacking an archive containing a specially crafted decoding table.
  - unlzh.c in the LHZ component in gzip allows context-dependent attackers
    to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted GZIP archive.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has
    assigned the names CVE-2006-4334, CVE-2006-4335, CVE-2006-4336,
    CVE-2006-4337 and CVE-2006-4338 to these issues.

    directory of the attackers choice when gunzip is used with the -N
