FreeBSD : libzip -- denial of service (b2952517-07e5-4d19-8850-21c5b7e0623f)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 103481


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


libzip developers report :

The _zip_read_eocd64 function in zip_open.c in libzip before 1.3.0 mishandles EOCD records, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory allocation failure in _zip_cdir_grow in zip_dirent.c) via a crafted ZIP archive.


Update the affected package.
