(UnZip: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Tavis Ormandy of the Google Security Team discovered that the NEEDBITS
macro in the inflate_dynamic() function in the file inflate.c can be
invoked using invalid buffers, which can lead to a double free.
Remote attackers could entice a user or automated system to open a
specially crafted ZIP file that might lead to the execution of
arbitrary code or a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
