Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA903] DSA-903-2 unzip

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-903-2 unzip

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The unzip update in DSA 903 contained a regression so that symbolic
links that are resolved later in a zip archive aren't supported
anymore.  This update corrects this behaviour.  For completeness,
below please find the original advisory text:
Imran Ghory discovered a race condition in the permissions setting
code in unzip. When decompressing a file in a directory a possible hacker
has access to, unzip could be tricked to set the file permissions to a
different file the user has permissions to.
For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 5.50-1woody5.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 5.52-1sarge3.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 5.52-6.
We recommend that you upgrade your unzip package.
