Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.

Description :

An updated zip package that fixes a buffer overflow vulnerability is
now available.

The zip program is an archiving utility which can create
ZIP-compatible archives.

A buffer overflow bug has been discovered in zip when handling long
file names. An attacker could create a specially crafted path which
could cause zip to crash or execute arbitrary instructions. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
name CVE-2004-1010 to this issue.

Users of zip should upgrade to this updated package, which contains
backported patches and is not vulnerable to this issue.
