If a ZIP archive contains binaries with the setuid and/or setgid bit set, unzip preserved those bits when extracting the archive. This could be exploited by tricking the administrator into unzipping an archive with a setuid-root binary into a directory the attacker can access. This allowed the attacker to execute arbitrary commands with root privileges.

The updated version does not preserve setuid, setgid, and sticky bits any more by default. The old behaviour can be explicitly requested now by supplying the option ‘-K’.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
