Two vulnerabilities have been found in unzip, a de-archiver for .zip files. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2015-7696

Gustavo Grieco discovered that unzip incorrectly handled certain
password protected archives. If a user or automated system were
tricked into processing a specially crafted zip archive, an attacker
could possibly execute arbitrary code.

CVE-2015-7697

Gustavo Grieco discovered that unzip incorrectly handled certain
malformed archives. If a user or automated system were tricked into
processing a specially crafted zip archive, an attacker could
possibly cause unzip to hang, resulting in a denial of service.
