UnAce: Buffer overflow and directory traversal vulnerabilities
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200502-32

Ulf Harnhammar discovered that UnAce suffers from buffer overflows
when testing, unpacking or listing specially crafted ACE archives
(CVE-2005-0160). He also found out that UnAce is vulnerable to
directory traversal attacks, if an archive contains "./.." sequences or
absolute filenames (CVE-2005-0161).
A possible hacker could exploit the buffer overflows to execute
malicious code or the directory traversals to overwrite arbitrary
There is no known workaround at this time.
All UnAce users should upgrade to the latest available 1.2
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-arch/unace-1.2b-r1"
