Several issues have been found in zlib, a compression library. They are basically about improper big-endian CRC calculation, improper left shift of negative integers and improper pointer arithmetic.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.7.dfsg-13+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your zlib packages.
