1.62 Sun 19 Aug 2018

  • Add to MANIFEST

1.61 Sat 18 Aug 2018

  • File::Find will not untaint [github/ThisUsedToBeAnEmail]
  • Prevent from traversing symlinks and parent directories when extracting [github/ppisar]

The latter item is CVE-2018-10860 : perl-archive-zip is vulnerable to a directory traversal in Archive::Zip. It was found that the Archive::Zip module did not properly sanitize paths while extracting zip files. An attacker able to provide a specially crafted archive for processing could use this flaw to write or overwrite arbitrary files in the context of the perl interpreter.

Note that the old (1.60) version has already been tagged.

Yes, I tagged all perl modules at once. However I think this can be updated now. I jsut updated it. Perl scripts only need a version number and md5sum to update. I'll go ahead and do it.
