Security Bulletin


Summary

Apache Commons Compress is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by the failure to return the correct EOF indication after the end of the stream has been reached by the ZipArchiveInputStream method. By reading a specially crafted ZIP archive, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the application to enter into an infinite loop. IBM Network Performance Insight has addressed this.
