Fedora Core 4 2006-098: unzip Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the unzip package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2006-098 (unzip).

The unzip utility is used to list, test, or extract files from a zip
archive. Zip archives are commonly found on MS-DOS systems. The zip
utility, included in the zip package, creates zip archives. Zip and
unzip are both compatible with archives created by PKWARE(R)'s PKZIP
for MS-DOS, but the programs' options and default behaviors do differ
in some respects.

Install the unzip package if you need to list, test or extract files from
a zip archive.
