Summary

    descriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200410-31 (Archive::Zip: Virus detection evasion) Archive::Zip can be used by email scanning software (like amavisd-new) to uncompress attachments before virus scanning. By modifying the uncompressed size of archived files in the global header of the ZIP file, it is possible to fool Archive::Zip into thinking some files inside the archive have zero length. Impact : An attacker could send a carefully crafted ZIP archive containing a virus file and evade detection on some email virus-scanning software relying on Archive::Zip for decompression. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

    descriptionRecently, it was noticed that several antivirus programs miss viruses that are contained in ZIP archives with manipulated directory data. The global archive directory of these ZIP file have been manipulated to indicate zero file sizes. Archive::Zip produces files of zero length when decompressing this type of ZIP file. This causes AV products that use Archive::ZIP to fail to detect viruses in manipulated ZIP archives. One of these products is amavisd-new. The updated packages are patched to fix this problem.
