Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in libzip, the worst of which might allow execution of arbitrary code.
|Package||dev-libs/libzip on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 0.10.1|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.10.1|
libzip is a library for manipulating zip archives.
Two vulnerabilities have been found in the "_zip_readcdir()" function in zip_open.c of libzip:
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted ZIP file, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process, a Denial of Service condition, or information leaks.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libzip users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/libzip-0.10.1"
