Memory leak in the zlib_stateful_finish function in
crypto/comp/c_zlib.c in OpenSSL 0.9.8l and earlier and 1.0.0 Beta
through Beta 4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(memory consumption) via vectors that trigger incorrect calls to the
CRYPTO_cleanup_all_ex_data function, as demonstrated by use of SSLv3
and PHP with the Apache HTTP Server, a related issue to CVE-2008-1678.
