A newly disclosed DoS vulnerability is reported to exist in zlib-1.2.1. It has been published openly at the openpkg URL mentioned above. A simple patch is available. I'm not sure whether the patch has been made public. For now I'm marking the bug as a "security problem".
Created attachment 157880 [details] [diff] [review] Patch from CERT zlib patch as received from CERT. Needs to be converted to a mozilla patch.

Reducing severity to normal because zlib-1.2.1 hasn't landed yet. Marking as blocking bug #248644. If someone uses the system lib they might be vulnerable. This issue has been assigned CVE# CAN-2004-0797 and CERT VU #238678.
