[slackware-security]  unzip vulnerability patched (SSA:2003-237-01)

Upgraded infozip packages are available for Slackware 9.0 and -current.
These fix a security issue where a specially crafted archive may
overwrite files (including system files anywhere on the filesystem)
upon extraction by a user with sufficient permissions.

Here are the details from the Slackware 9.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
Mon Aug 25 15:35:28 PDT 2003
patches/packages/infozip-5.50-i486-2.tgz:  Fixed a bug where a specially
  crafted archive might try to write to ../ or ../../, etc, potentially
  overwriting system files if the user (such as root) has permissions to
  overwrite them.  Thanks to jelmer for locating this problem, and
  Ben Laurie for providing a patch.
  (* Security fix *)
