<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could entice a user to run a zziplib function with an
overly long string as an argument which would trigger the buffer
overflow and may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All zziplib users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-libs/zziplib-0.13.49&quot;</code>
</resolution>
