missing bzip2 bounds checks, other stream-corruption checks

                 Key: HADOOP-6966
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6966
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.22.0
            Reporter: Greg Roelofs

The bzip2 Java port by Keiron Liddle appears to be very closely related to the bzip2/libbzip2
C code, but it is missing a number of data-integrity checks present in the latter (including
today's fix for CVE-2010-0405).

Java may be immune to C-style buffer overruns, but the data-corruption possibility remains.
 I believe most of the 20+ BZ_DATA_ERROR checks in decompress.c are appropriate in the Ant/Hadoop
