Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-11-03 08:09:59 UTC
From ${URL} :

Latest American fuzzy lop[0] tarball[1] contains a zip file that crashes 
unzip -t:

$ unzip -qt afl-0.43b/docs/samples/
foo/:  mismatching "local" filename (���/UT),
         continuing with "central" filename version
*** Error in `unzip': free(): corrupted unsorted chunks: 0x00000000015d0170 ***

I'm not sure if inclusion of said zip file was intentional, but since 
the cat is already out of the bag, I thought I'll let you know.


the unofficial patch:

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
Comment 1 Hanno Böck gentoo-dev 2014-12-23 09:34:21 UTC
lists three more security issues:
CVE-2014-8139 (CRC32 heap overflow), CVE-2014-8140 (test_compr_eb), CVE-2014-8141 (getZip64Data)

All are independent of the american fuzzy lop issue. Unfortunately upstream seems to do releases rarely. There are also some issues mentioned in upstream's forum that are a couple of years old and look like they could be security issues:
Comment 2 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2016-04-03 00:06:40 UTC
those 4 issues should all be fixed in 6.0_p20 by using patches Debian is carrying
