SuSE9 Security Update : Zip (YOU Patch Number 9530)

High Nessus Plugin ID 41340


The remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.


When zip performs recursive folder compression, it does not check for the length of resulting path. If the path is too long, a buffer overflow occurs leading to stack corruption and segmentation fault.


Apply YOU patch number 9530.
