Integer underflow in the unlzw function in unlzw.c in gzip before 1.4
on 64-bit platforms, as used in ncompress and probably others, allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted archive that uses LZW
compression, leading to an array index error.
