Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56298
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-248-1 (unzip)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-248-1 (unzip)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to unzip
announced via advisory USN-248-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected: unzip

A buffer overflow was discovered in the handling of file name
arguments. By tricking a user or automated system into processing a
specially crafted, excessively long file name with unzip, an attacker
could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the user's
privileges.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 5.51-2ubuntu0.3 (for Ubuntu 4.10), 5.51-2ubuntu1.3 (for Ubuntu
5.04), or 5.52-3ubuntu2.1 (for Ubuntu 5.10). In general, a standard
system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
