[slackware-security]  infozip (SSA:2005-121-01)

New infozip (zip/unzip) packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0,
9.1, 10.0, 10.1, and -current to fix security issues.

- From the www.info-zip.org site:

      Zip 2.3 and (presumably) all previous versions have a buffer-
      overrun vulnerability relating to deep directory paths that could
      potentially lead to local privilege escalation (e.g., in the case of
      automated, Zip-based backups). See the FAQ page for details.

      All versions of UnZip through 5.50 have a number of directory-
      traversal vulnerabilities, and version 5.50 also has a textmode data-
      corruption bug that affects 16-bit ports such as MS-DOS. See the FAQ
      page for details.


Here are the details from the Slackware 10.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/infozip-5.52-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to unzip552.tar.gz and
  zip231.tar.gz.  These fix some buffer overruns if deep directory paths are
  packed into a Zip archive which could be a security vulnerability (for
  example, in a case of automated archiving or backups that use Zip).  However,
  it also appears that these now use certain assembly instructions that might
  not be available on older CPUs, so if you have an older machine you may wish
  to take this into account before deciding whether you should upgrade.
  (* Security fix *)
