- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 ESM
- Ubuntu 14.04 ESM

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in unzip.

Software Description:
- unzip: De-archiver for .zip files

Details:

It was discovered that unzip did not properly handle unicode strings under
certain circumstances. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted
zip file, an attacker could possibly use this issue to cause unzip to crash,
resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. 
(CVE-2021-4217)

It was discovered that unzip did not properly perform bounds checking while
converting wide strings to local strings. If a user were tricked into opening a
specially crafted zip file, an attacker could possibly use this issue to cause
unzip to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2022-0529, CVE-2022-0530)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
  unzip                           6.0-26ubuntu3.1
