[slackware-security]  zoo archiver overflow (SSA:2006-142-02)

New bin packages are available for Slackware 10.2 and -current to
fix a security issue with the zoo archive program.  A non-security-
related upgrade to the newest version of "eject" was also done.


Here are the details from the Slackware 10.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/bin-10.2-i486-2_10.2.tgz:
  Upgraded to eject-2.1.4 to fix problems with 2.6 kernels (bugfix).
  Patched a security problem in zoo's fullpath() function that was reported by
  Jean-Sebastien Guay-Leroux.  At first this didn't seem like much as zoo is
  old and hardly used, but there are virus scanning programs that scan zoo
  archives.  It is a possible problem on any system running zoo like this in
  an automated way, and (of course) could also cause problems if a user were
  to open a malicious zoo archive manually.  (though I'd be pretty suspicious
  if someone were to mail me anything using "zoo" in 2006...)
  (* Security fix *)
