[USN-191-1] unzip vulnerability

===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-191-1         September 29, 2005
unzip vulnerability
CAN-2005-2475
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected:

unzip

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 5.51-2ubuntu0.2 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or 5.51-2ubuntu1.2 (for
Ubuntu 5.04).  In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to
effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Imran Ghory found a race condition in the handling of output files.
While a file was unpacked by unzip, a local attacker with write
permissions to the target directory could exploit this to change the
permissions of arbitrary files of the unzip user.
