    zziplib vulnerabilities


    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

    • Ubuntu 17.04
    • Ubuntu 16.10
    • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    Summary


    zziplib could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it opened a specially crafted file.

    Software description

    • zziplib - library providing read access on ZIP-archives
    Details


    Agostino Sarubbo discovered that zziplib incorrectly handled certain
    malformed ZIP files. If a user or automated system were tricked into
    opening a specially crafted ZIP file, a remote attacker could cause zziplib
    to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
    code.

    Update instructions


    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package version:

    Ubuntu 17.04:
    libzzip-0-13 0.13.62-3ubuntu0.17.04.1
    Ubuntu 16.10:
    libzzip-0-13 0.13.62-3ubuntu0.16.10.1
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
    libzzip-0-13 0.13.62-3ubuntu0.16.04.1
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
    libzzip-0-13 0.13.62-2ubuntu0.1

    To update your system, please follow these instructions: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Security/Upgrades.

    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
