Description

** DISPUTED ** chmextract.c in the chmextract sample program, as distributed with libmspack before 0.8alpha, does not protect against absolute/relative pathnames in CHM files, leading to Directory Traversal. NOTE: the vendor disputes that this is a libmspack vulnerability, because chmextract.c was only intended as a source-code example, not a supported application.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-libmspack-devel
  • suse-upgrade-libmspack0
  • suse-upgrade-libmspack0-32bit
  • suse-upgrade-mspack-tools
