 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability in zip was discovered where zip would not check the
 resulting path length when doing recursive folder compression, which
 could allow a malicious person to convince a user to create an archive
 containing a specially-crafted path name.  By doing so, arbitrary code
 could be executed with the permissions of the user running zip.

 The updated packages are patched to prevent this problem.
