Gentoo Security Advisory GLSA 200408-26 (zlib)

The remote host is missing updates announced in advisory GLSA 200408-26.
All zlib users should upgrade to the latest version: # emerge sync # emerge -pv '>=sys-libs/zlib-1.2.1-r3' # emerge '>=sys-libs/zlib-1.2.1-r3' You should also run revdep-rebuild to rebuild any packages that depend on older versions of zlib : # revdep-rebuild Please note that any packages which have the zlib library compiled statically will not show up using revdep-rebuild. You will need to locate those packages manually and then remerge them.
The zlib library contains a Denial of Service vulnerability.
