openSUSE Security Update : unzip (openSUSE-2018-709)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 110965


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update for unzip fixes the following issues :

- CVE-2014-9636: Prevent denial of service (out-of-bounds read or write and crash) via an extra field with an uncompressed size smaller than the compressed field size in a zip archive that advertises STORED method compression (bsc#914442)

- CVE-2018-1000035: Prevent heap-based buffer overflow in the processing of password-protected archives that allowed an attacker to perform a denial of service or to possibly achieve code execution (bsc#1080074)

This non-security issue was fixed :

+- Allow processing of Windows zip64 archives (Windows archivers set total_disks field to 0 but per standard, valid values are 1 and higher) (bnc#910683)

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-15:Update update project.


Update the affected unzip packages.
