Description Sam Fowler 2018-03-13 06:58:11 UTC
ZZIPlib through version 0.13.68 is vulnerable to a memory leak in
unzzipcat-mem.c:unzzip_cat() and unzip-mem.c:main(), where a ZZIP_MEM_DISK is
allocated but not released. An attacker could exploit this to cause a denial of
service via a crafted zip file.
