Fixed In Version: gzip 1.12
Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
An arbitrary file write vulnerability was found in GNU gzip's zgrep utility. When zgrep is applied on the attacker's chosen file name (for example, a crafted file name), this can overwrite an attacker's content to an arbitrary attacker-selected file. This flaw occurs due to insufficient validation when processing filenames with two or more newlines where selected content and the target file names are embedded in crafted multi-line file names. This flaw allows a remote, low privileged attacker to force zgrep to write arbitrary files on the system.

Comment 9 Todd Zullinger 2022-04-16 19:30:10 UTC
Is there a fedora tracker for xz?

I filed a PR to apply the upstream patch:

Thanks - I've merged this into Rawhide and will do the build soon and
look at bug 2073312 for other Fedora branches.
