    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-9636
    Debian Bug     : 776589
    
    A flaw was found in the test_compr_eb() function allowing out-of-bounds
    read and write access to memory locations. By carefully crafting a
    corrupt ZIP archive an attacker can trigger a heap overflow, resulting
    in application crash or possibly having other unspecified impact.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 6.0-8+deb7u2. Additionally this update corrects a defective
    patch applied to address CVE-2014-8139, which caused a regression with
    executable jar files.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 6.0-15. The defective patch applied to address CVE-2014-8139 was
    corrected in version 6.0-16.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your unzip packages.
