The fix for this issue is upstream here:
Zziplib is susceptible to infinite loop (loop with unreachable exit condition) when processing malformed zip files.The behavior of this condition could cause terminal unresponsiveness when running the command line. When using the library this could lead to application unresponsiveness.High CPU on said application/binary is also a possibility of this issue.
