CVE-2009-2624

Priority
Description
The huft_build function in inflate.c in gzip before 1.3.13 creates a hufts
(aka huffman) table that is too small, which allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (application crash or infinite loop) or possibly
execute arbitrary code via a crafted archive. NOTE: this issue is caused
by a CVE-2006-4334 regression.
