Description

An improper input validation was found in function __zzip_fetch_disk_trailer of ZZIPlib, up to 0.13.68, that could lead to a crash in __zzip_parse_root_directory function of zzip/ip.c. Remote attackers could leverage this vulnerability to cause a denial of service via a crafted zip file.(CVE-2018-7726)

A memory leak was found in unzip-mem.c and unzzip-mem.c of ZZIPlib, up to v0.13.68, that could lead to resource exhaustion. Local attackers could leverage this vulnerability to cause a denial of service via a crafted zip file.(CVE-2018-7727)

An out of bounds read was found in function zzip_disk_fread of ZZIPlib, up to 0.13.68, when ZZIPlib mem_disk functionality is used. Remote attackers could leverage this vulnerability to cause a denial of service via a crafted zip file.(CVE-2018-7725)
