Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:118: perl-Archive-Zip

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the perl-Archive-Zip package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:118 (perl-Archive-Zip).



Recently, it was noticed that several antivirus programs miss viruses that are
contained in ZIP archives with manipulated directory data. The global archive
directory of these ZIP file have been manipulated to indicate zero file sizes.

Archive::Zip produces files of zero length when decompressing this type of ZIP
file. This causes AV products that use Archive::ZIP to fail to detect viruses
in manipulated ZIP archives. One of these products is amavisd-new.

The updated packages are patched to fix this problem.
