    zziplib vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 17.04
    - Ubuntu 16.10
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    zziplib could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it opened a
    specially crafted file.
    
    Software Description:
    - zziplib: library providing read access on ZIP-archives
    
    Details:
    
    Agostino Sarubbo discovered that zziplib incorrectly handled certain
    malformed ZIP files. If a user or automated system were tricked into
    opening a specially crafted ZIP file, a remote attacker could cause zziplib
    to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
    code.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 17.04:
      libzzip-0-13                    0.13.62-3ubuntu0.17.04.1
    
    Ubuntu 16.10:
      libzzip-0-13                    0.13.62-3ubuntu0.16.10.1
    
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
      libzzip-0-13                    0.13.62-3ubuntu0.16.04.1
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      libzzip-0-13                    0.13.62-2ubuntu0.1
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
