On a freshly d/l'd and verified gzip package for RH 7.2, I get:


(using rpm -qilp --dump gzip-1.3-15.i386.rpm)

Unexpectedly, gzip *doesn't* appear on anyone's list for 
packages affected by the zlib 'double free' vulnerability,
so I believe that's not at issue here.

Hope that helps!

Code seen in the rear mirror may look better than it is.
