    The unzip update in DSA 903 contained a regression so that symbolic links that are resolved later in a zip archive aren't supported anymore. This update corrects this behaviour.

    The unzip update in DSA 903 contained a regression so that symbolic
    links that are resolved later in a zip archive aren't supported
    anymore.  This update corrects this behaviour.  For completeness,
    below plese find the original advisory text:
    
       Imran Ghory discovered a race condition in the permissions setting
       code in unzip.  When decompressing a file in a directory an
       attacker has access to, unzip could be tricked to set the file
       permissions to a different file the user has permissions to.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.50-1woody5.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.52-1sarge3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.52-6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your unzip package.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
