Debian DLA-2082-1 : unzip security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 133320


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


An issue has been found in unzip, a de-archiver for .zip files. While processing a password protected archive, a heap-based buffer overflow could happen, that allows an attacker to perform a denial of service or to possibly achieve code execution.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 6.0-16+deb8u6.

We recommend that you upgrade your unzip packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Upgrade the affected unzip package.
