  <title>Archive::Zip: Virus detection evasion</title>
  <synopsis>
    Email virus scanning software relying on Archive::Zip can be fooled into
    thinking a ZIP attachment is empty while it contains a virus, allowing
    detection evasion.

    <p>
    Archive::Zip is a Perl module containing functions to handle ZIP
    archives.
    </p>
  </background>
  <description>
    <p>
    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.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="low">
    <p>
    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.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All Archive::Zip users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=dev-perl/Archive-Zip-1.14"</code>
