Jean-Sébastien Guay-Leroux report a vulnerability within the zoo archiver. The vulnerability which is present in the fullpath() function (from the misc.c file) is caused by improper checking of user supplied data. The data returned to the buffer can be up to 512 bytes, while the buffer is created to hold 256 bytes. This could result in a buffer overflow which could allow remote code execution.
