gzip Integer Overflow Vulnerability

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:7511

Integer underflow in the unlzw function in unlzw.c in gzip before 1.4 on 64-bit platforms as used in ncompress and probably others allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted archive that uses LZW compression leading to an array index error.
