                 Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory

 Package name:           perl-Archive-Zip
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:118
 Date:                   November 1st, 2004

 Affected versions:      10.1

 Problem Description:

 Recently, it was noticed that several antivirus programs miss viruses that 
 are contained in ZIP archives with manipulated directory data. The global 
 archive directory of these ZIP file have been manipulated to indicate zero 
 file sizes.
 Archive::Zip produces files of zero length when decompressing this type of 
 ZIP file. This causes AV products that use Archive::ZIP to fail to detect 
 viruses in manipulated ZIP archives. One of these products is amavisd-new.
 The updated packages are patched to fix this problem.
