Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

result in a heap overflow on corrupted zip files (CVE-2012-1162).

libzip (version <= 0.10) has a numeric overflow condition, which, for
example, results in improper restrictions of operations within the

correct these issues.
