Insight

Insight

The unzip utility is used to list, test, or extract files from a zip archive. An invalid pointer flaw was found in unzip. If a user ran unzip on a specially crafted file, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with that user's privileges. (CVE-2008-0888) Red Hat would like to thank Tavis Ormandy of the Google Security Team for reporting this issue. All unzip users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.
