ZLib bug affects "closed source" apps too

From the bugs-bite-every-where... dept. (3243) (0) by Luis

It seems that not only GNU-based
operating systems (like Linux and *BSD) and/or apps are affected by the currently discovered bug and security breach of zlib, but other companies who might have used zlib and never admitted it, like Microsoft ... We just hope that no major, snowball effect-like, array of problems start breeding from this hidden monster.
Check the list of apps to make sure that you patch/upgrade those quickly ... :-)
