Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:141: zip

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the zip package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:141 (zip).



A vulnerability in zip was discovered where zip would not check the resulting
path length when doing recursive folder compression, which could permit a
malicious person to convince a user to create an archive containing a
specially-crafted path name. By doing so, arbitrary code could be executed with
the permissions of the user running zip.

The updated packages are patched to prevent this problem.
