    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-10860
    Debian Bug     : 902882
    
    It was discovered that Archive::Zip, a perl module for manipulation of
    ZIP archives, is prone to a directory traversal vulnerability. An
    attacker able to provide a specially crafted archive for processing can
    take advantage of this flaw to overwrite arbitrary files during archive
    extraction.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.59-1+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libarchive-zip-perl packages.
