CVE-2018-1324: Apache Commons Compress denial of service vulnerability

Severity: Low

The Apache Software Foundation

Versions Affected:
Apache Commons Compress 1.11 to 1.15

A specially crafted ZIP archive can be used to cause an infinite loop
inside of Compress' extra field parser used by the ZipFile and
ZipArchiveInputStream classes.  This can be used to mount a denial of
service attack against services that use Compress' zip package.

Commons Compress users should upgrade to 1.16 or later
