Description Tomas Hoger 2008-03-20 19:06:52 UTC
CERT-FI and CPNI published a results of their research on archiver flaws.  Large
set of archives in various formats (ACE, ARJ, BZ2, CAB, GZ, LHA, RAR, TAR, ZIP
and ZOO) was published, along with list of affected vendors.

According to the results, p7zip contained some problems, that should be fixed in
upstream 4.57.  However, CERT-FI/CPNI and 7-Zip pages do not seem to have
further details on which formats were affected and whether those were crash-only
issues or possibly some code execution issues.

Fedora currently ships p7zip 4.51.
