Description Cedric Buissart 2018-06-14 18:19:34 UTC
Archive::Zip does not protect against symlinks or '..' path traversals. Attacks similar to CVE-2007-4829 or CVE-2018-12015 also affect Archive::Zip.

Comment 1 Petr Pisar 2018-06-15 06:10:51 UTC
Archive::Zip has never been part of upstream Perl release:

$ corelist Archive::Zip

Data for 2018-04-14
Archive::Zip was not in CORE (or so I think)

It's an independent project <https://metacpan.org/release/Archive-Zip>.
