Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-08-02 14:50:34 UTC
A deficiency has been reported in the way cabextract extracted
certain Cabinet (*.cab) files, using the MZ-ZIP and Quantum decompressors.
If a local user was tricked into opening a specially-crafted *.cab
file, it could lead to infinite loop.

cabextract (together with wine and openoffice.org per libmspack upstream) should use the system-wide libmspack library instead of an embedded copy
