The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200502-32
(UnAce: Buffer overflow and directory traversal vulnerabilities)
Ulf Harnhammar discovered that UnAce suffers from buffer overflows
when testing, unpacking or listing specially crafted ACE archives
(CAN-2005-0160). He also found out that UnAce is vulnerable to
directory traversal attacks, if an archive contains './..' sequences or
absolute filenames (CAN-2005-0161).
An attacker could exploit the buffer overflows to execute
malicious code or the directory traversals to overwrite arbitrary
There is no known workaround at this time.
