Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2015-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Wolfgang Ettlinger discovered that unzip incorrectly handled certain
malformed zip archives. If a user or automated system were tricked
into processing a specially crafted zip archive, an attacker could
possibly execute arbitrary code.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
Update the affected unzip package.
