MDKSA-2004:141: zip Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the zip package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:141 (zip).

A vulnerability in zip was discovered where zip would not check the resulting
path length when doing recursive folder compression, which could allow a
malicious person to convince a user to create an archive containing a
specially-crafted path name. By doing so, arbitrary code could be executed with
the permissions of the user running zip.

The updated packages are patched to prevent this problem.
