Description

An updated zip package that fixes a buffer overflow vulnerability is now available.

The zip program is an archiving utility which can create ZIP-compatible archives. A buffer overflow bug has been discovered in zip when handling long file names. An attacker could create a specially crafted path which could cause zip to crash or execute arbitrary instructions. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-1010 to this issue. Users of zip should upgrade to this updated package, which contains backported patches and is not vulnerable to this issue.
